A patient with Reye syndrome was studied throughout the course of the illness with continuous EEG monitoring, and these patterns were correlated with serial determinations of serum ammonia and short-chain fatty acid concentrations. There was high correlation between degree of EEG abnormality, clinical symptoms, and elevations of the short-chain fatty acids, while serum ammonia concentrations correlated poorly with the EEG and with the clinical state.
