I would like to suggest to Drs. Greenberg and Christiansen the addition of another entity to the Table of Causes of Hypoglycemia in Childhood which was listed in their article "The Critically Ill Child: Hypoglycemia"1 This is the Reye's syndrome2 or if one prefers, encephalopathy and fatty degeneration of the viscera. Some authors3 consider that the etiology is related to salicylate ingestion and if indeed this is the case then this disease would be listed under the section of pharmacologic or toxic alterations in glucose homeostasis.
