Diflucan (fluconazole) is a drug developed by Phizer to treat specific types of yeast infections and meningitis caused by a kind of fungus. However, recent studies warn that high dosages of this drug could be associated with the development of specific, rare birth defects.

A safety alert was released by the FDA in August 2011 after medical reports linked Diflucan with rare birth defects in infants whose mothers were prescribed high doses (between 400 mg to 800 mg per day) for long periods during the first trimester of the pregnancy. The birth defects reported included:
- Brachycephaly (flat, wide head syndrome)
- Facial abnormalities
- Abnormal skull cap development
- Cleft palate
- Muscle weakness and joint defects
- Congenital heart disease
