Nonketotic hyperosmolar diabetic coma is well known in adults, but infrequently reported in children. This syndrome is associated with a 20-70% mortality rate. We report the successful treatment of a 12.5 year old girl with a hyperglycemic (1,800 mg/dl glucose) nonketotic hyperosmolar diabetic coma and summarize the reported cases in the literature.
