Reye's Syndrome | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the disease diagnosed?

Diagnosis of Reye's syndrome begins with a medical history and physical exam. Blood tests and a liver biopsy can confirm Reye's syndrome.

Some children with chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis must be treated long term with medicines that contain aspirin. These children should receive the chickenpox and flu vaccines to reduce their risk of developing Reye's syndrome.
