Acetaminophen (APAP) is a widely used as analgesic and antipyretic drug. APAP is also added as an active ingredient in various medications to relieve pain and reduce fever. APAP has been widely used in pregnant women in the past decades because it is considered a relatively safe drug with recommended dose in different countries.

This review aims to assess the potential effects of prenatal APAP exposure on offspring growth and development.
