Reader response: Right Brain: Withholding treatment from a child with an epileptic encephalomyopathy


Drs. Rothstein and Lewis1 provided an interesting review of the ethical issues around this case. However, I am curious about the lack of discussion of the financial impact of the case and how it relates to the principles of justice and fairness. Would the authors have reached the same conclusion if they had considered the costs involved with transfer and treatment, and the effect that those costs would have on the delivery of care to other patients in need?
