Abstract

Recalcitrant neonatal hypoglycemia poses a treatment challenge for clinicians. When a patient's hypoglycemia does not respond to dextrose infusion, several medication options are available, including diazoxide(1,2). Several side effects of diazoxide are described in the literature, including fluid retention with the risk of development of congestive heart failure(3,4). We describe a case of necrotizing enterocolitis in a patient with Beckwith-Wiedemann Syndrome with persistent neonatal hypoglycemia who was treated with increasing doses of diazoxide.
