Henna is a popular cosmetic product that can be used for different purposes in our country (South-East Anatolia). Local and systemic side effects have been reported after the topical use of henna. These side effects include nephrotoxicity, hemolytic anemia, rhabdomyolysis, and multiple organ failure. Here, we present a case of a newborn who was diagnosed with multiple organ failure after receiving a topical henna application.
