Author information

Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children, Northern Ireland.


Signs of raised intracranial pressure (ICP) developed during treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis in a young child. A CT scan revealed cerebral oedema and direct measurement confirmed elevated ICP. Aggressive treatment was successful in maintaining cerebral perfusion pressure. The child survived with mild handicap in contrast to the poor outcome of previous reports.
