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.
