15. A 7-week-old boy is brought to the physician because of fever, irritability, and lethargy for 3 days. He has had no vomiting, diarrhea, or symptoms of an upper respiratory tract infection. He always seems hungry to his mother despite being fed 3 ounces of formula every 3 hours. His mother also notes that he has many wet diapers throughout the day and night. He currently appears irritable. His temperature is 37.8 C (100 F), blood pressure is 80/50 mm Hg, pulse is150/min, and respirations are 25/min. Examination shows a sunken anterior fontanelle. Mucous membranes are dry. There is tenting of the skin. Examination shows no other abnormalities. Urinalysis is negative for glucose and protein.

What is the diagnosis and the answer? Can any one explain ? Thanks
