[Hyperglycemic, hyperosmolar nonketotic diabetic coma in the pediatric age].

[Article in Italian]


A case of non-ketotic hyperglycaemic-hyperosmolar diabetic coma in a 8 yr. old boy after a severe mental trauma is reported. This joins the 18 similar cases of paediatric age published up to now. On the basis of the results of virological and immunological investigations, insulinogenic function and psychodiagnosis, the diagnosis, aetiopathogenesis and therapy of this unusual event are discussed. The desirability of measuring plasma osmolarity in children diabetic coma is stressed.
