September is Reye’s Syndrome Awareness month.
Reye syndrome predominantly affects kids between 4 and 14 years old, and occurs most frequently when viral diseases are epidemic, such as during the winter months or following an outbreak of chickenpox or influenza B.
The chances for a successful recovery are greater when Reye syndrome is treated in its earliest stages.
