Reye-Like Syndromes

Why are Reye-like disorders of importance?

Firstly, if they are inherited metabolic disorders then illness is likely to occur at some stage but with treatment may be prevented from doing so. (True Reye's syndrome almost never recurs).

Secondly, because these conditions are inherited they may occur in other children in the family. Once again, early recognition and treatment may prevent these children from coming to harm.
