The authors present the main emergencies: electrolytic unbalances – hypoglycemia, hyponatremia, metabolic acidosis and neonatal hypocalcemia; endocrine dysfunctions – suprarenal insufficiency and neonatal hypopituitarism; inborn metabolic diseases – acidosis, hyperglycemia/ hypoglycemia, hyperammoniemia, clinical symptoms associated to them, and recommended treatment.
