Background: Cerebral edema is a fatal complication that can occur in children with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Its clinical signs are generally not explicit, and subclinical cerebral edema can occur. This study is one of the few longitudinal studies conducted to identify cerebral edema in patients with DKA by measuring the optic nerve sheath diameter (ONSD). The aim of this study was to investigate cerebral edema in children with DKA with serial measurement of ONSD, which is an early and reliable indicator of cerebral edema, and to monitor changes in ONSD during therapy.
