Panhypopit, hypothalamic dysfunction & episodic hypothermia w/ sweating

My daughter (one year old) has Septo-Optic Dysplasia, which of course includes panhypopituitarism. She also has hypothalamic dysfunction with body temperature dysregulation.

She has recently had two episodes of hypothermia (94-96 degrees) lasting from a few hours to a day or more, accompanied by flushed face and profuse sweating. She does not normally sweat, even when overheated. These episodes also include general crankiness, sometimes with inconsolable crying. Strangely, the flushing is sometimes only on one half of her face, with the other being quite pale.

I appreciate any insight you might have into these episodes.

Unfortunately, I have no experience with this.  Probably best to consult with a university-based pediatric endocrinologist.
