Complications of obesity-hypoventilation syndrome in childhood.

Abstract

The obesity-hypoventilation syndrome is rare in children, but it leads to serious complications and is associated with a high mortality. We report a child with this syndrome whose condition improved after intestinal bypass surgery. Review of the literature indicates that vigorous treatment of this disorder is necessary to prevent fatalities.
