Prognosis of Reye's Syndrome

Prognosis of Reye's Syndrome: Good for early diagnosis and treatment; degraded for delayed treatment or if the patient suffers seizures, coma or breathing difficulties. ...see also Overview of Reye's Syndrome

Prognosis for Reye's Syndrome: Recovery from RS is directly related to the severity of the swelling of the brain. Some people recover completely, while others may sustain varying degrees of brain damage. Those cases in which the disorder progresses rapidly and the patient lapses into a coma have a poorer prognosis than those with a less severe course. Statistics indicate that when RS is diagnosed and treated in its early stages, chances of recovery are excellent. When diagnosis and treatment are delayed, the chances for successful recovery and survival are severely reduced. Unless RS is diagnosed and treated successfully, death is common, often within a few days.
