A 10-day-old infant presented to the emergency department with a chief complaint of weight loss and was discovered to be hypothermic with decreased respiratory drive. His initial management focused on resuscitation, management of impending respiratory failure, and empiric treatment for sepsis. Ultimately, laboratory results and a bedside ultrasound revealed the true cause of his symptoms.
