Diflucan® (fluconazole) Birth Defect Lawsuits
Diflucan® birth defect lawsuits are filed on behalf of parents whose babies are born with birth defects after being exposed to fluconazole during fetal development. Evidence shows that women who are treated with high doses of fluconazole for long periods of time during their pregnancies are more likely to give birth to babies with certain birth defects, including facial defects, congenital heart disease and femoral bowing.
Was Your Child Born with a Birth Defect?
If you were prescribed Diflucan® (fluconazole) to treat a yeast infection during your pregnancy and your baby is born with a birth defect, you may be eligible to pursue damages by filing a Diflucan® birth defect lawsuit. Recoverable compensation might include the cost of surgery, medications and other necessary treatments for your baby as well as the pain and suffering endured by you and your child.
A lawsuit might be right for you if your baby was diagnosed with one or more of the following conditions:
- Thin Ribs and Long Bones
- Bowing of the Thigh Bones
- Congenital Heart Disease
- Joint Deformities
- Muscle Weakness
- Abnormal Face Defects
- Cleft Lip
- Cleft Palate
