Abstract

It was 1 am when my wife woke me up, saying that our tiny tot (who was six months old) was shivering and had a high fever. We immediately wrapped him in his blankets and rushed to the paediatric ward of my hospital. Surprisingly, there was less chaos than usual in the ward that night. I requested one of the senior postgraduate students to examine my baby. Wasting no time, she started assessing all the parameters and told us that the baby’s temperature was 102 °F. Meanwhile, the rigours started again and the baby had two bouts of vomiting. In view of the entire clinical picture, the paediatrician advised us to get the baby admitted in the intensive care unit (ICU).
