2. What Are the Symptoms?

The symptoms of Reye’s syndrome are often different for younger children than for teenagers. Children under the age of two may experience diarrhea, lethargy and rapid breathing, which can advance to confusion and seizures as the condition progresses.

Children over the age of two and teenagers also experience extreme lethargy, but they also usually exhibit persistent vomiting. Irrational or aggressive behavior may occur as symptoms progress, along with confusion and limb weakness. Seizures and reduced levels of consciousness are severe symptoms that require immediate emergency treatment.
