The presence of phenycyclidine (PCP) in breast milk and amniotic fluid of a young drug abuser is described. Implications drawn from these data include the possible use of amniocentesis in women with well-documented histories of drug abuse who have low levels of PCP in urine, and the restriction of breast feeding in women who have abused PCP.
