Severe Hypertriglyceridemia Causing Pancreatitis in a Child with New-onset Type-I Diabetes Mellitus Presenting with Diabetic Ketoacidosis



Severe Hypertriglyceridemia Causing Pancreatitis in a Child with New-onset Type-I Diabetes Mellitus Presenting with Diabetic Ketoacidosis



Indian Journal of Critical Care Medicine 21(3): 176-178



The triad of pancreatitis, hypertriglyceridemia, and diabetic ketoacidosis and its treatment has not been extensively discussed in the pediatric literature. We report a 4-year-old child with severe hypertriglyceridemia, pancreatitis, and diabetic ketoacidosis. Hypertriglyceridemia and pancreatitis with diabetic ketoacidosis can be successfully managed with insulin and hydration therapy in children. Early recognition of this triad is important as insulin requirements, recovery duration, and prognosis can be altered.
