- Other possible CNS complications include encephalitis, meningitis, transverse myelitis and, rarely, Reye's syndrome (especially subsequent to aspirin use).
- Children and adolescents under the age of 21 shouldn't take aspirin because of the risk of Reye's syndrome - a potentially life-threatening condition.
