VELEZ, Paola; PAREDES, Patricio  and  FUENMAYOR, Frances. Differential diagnosis from hyperglycemic ketoacidosis: Pesticide poisoning. Clinical case. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.2, pp.2-3. ISSN 0325-0075.

Diabetic ketoacidosis in children causes serious morbidity and mortality, especially if it is not recognized on time in the initial diagnosis. However, there are other diseases that can appear to be a metabolic disorder of this kind and be ignored if it is not suspected. We present a clinical case with hyperglycemic ketoacidosis due to the contact with organophosphate; we had to use a continuous infusion of insulin to control the metabolic disorder without repercussions after the girl came home.

Keywords : Organophosphorus compounds; Acetylcholinesterase; Hyperglycemia; Ketoacidosis; Seizures.
