GONZALEZ JIMENO, Alicia; MARBAN CALZON, Mercedes; GARCIA BERMEJO, Alba  and  MARTIN CASTIBLANCO, Diana. Severe hypoglycaemia after incarcerated inguinal hernia postoperative. Rev Pediatr Aten Primaria [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.79, pp.e79-e81. ISSN 1139-7632.

Hypoglycemia is one of the most frequent metabolic disorders during the infancy and a common manifestation to different entities. Hypoglycemia is defined as a plasma venous glucose level less than 50 mg/dl, below which it is necessary to intervene to avoid morbidity and neurological sequelae. The symptomatology associated with the hypoglycemia is so much more non-specific the less age the child has and their causes differ according to age, in younger than 2 years and out of the neonatal period inborn errors of metabolism are one of the etiologies to be ruled out. We present the case of a 11-month-old boy who is diagnosed with a metabolic disease after a seizure due to hypoglycemia in the postoperative period of gastrointestinal surgery.

Keywords : Hypoglycemia; Metabolism, inborn errors; Meglutol.
