, Abstract—Background: Intentional massive sodium chloride ingestions are rare occurrences and are often fatal. Objectives: There are a variety of treatment recommendations for hypernatremia, ranging from dialysis to varying rates of correction. We report a case of acute severe hypernatremia corrected with rapid free-water infusions that, to our knowledge, has not been previously reported. Case Report: A 19-year-old man presented to the Emergency Department in a comatose state with seizure-like…

[Treatment of salt poisoning due to soy sauce ingestion with hemodialysis].
TLDR
A 65-year-old woman who became unresponsive after ingesting 1150 ml of soy sauce was treated successfully with acute hemodialysis and her serum sodium concentration decreased to 146 mEq/l without any significant neurologic complication.
Treatment of acute hypernatremia with hemodialysis.
TLDR
The preliminary experience has yielded adequate results without significant side effects, but additional studies are needed to refine this technique that might be life-saving in selective situations.
Central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis in a pediatric patient following rapid correction of hypernatremia.
TLDR
The report of a leukemic, malnourished 14-year-old boy with a high serum sodium concentration that gradually increased to 170 mmol/L demonstrates that central pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis can occur after excessively rapid correction of hypernatremia.
Rapid correction of acute salt poisoning by peritoneal dialysis
TLDR
Since hypernatremia was acute and development of intracellular idiogenic osmoles was presumably minimal, serum sodium was lowered rapidly over 14 h by hourly peritoneal dialysis using a commercial dialysate, and the patient survived without any short or long-term neurological sequelae.
Survival after severe hypernatremia due to salt ingestion by an adult.
[Sodium intoxication with fatal outcome caused by peritoneal lavage with hypertonic solution of NaCl].
TLDR
A case of fatal sodium poisoning due to the unintentional use of 20% hypertonic saline serum during peritoneal lavage after intestinal resection is reported, in which the patient died 15 hours after the operation.
Acute salt poisoning due to different oral rehydration solution (ORS) packet sizes
The packing and composition of ORS has undergone a change since its introduction. In India, some companies are manufacturing smaller pouches (4.2 g) to be dissolved in 200 ml of water. Therefore, out
Fatal ingestion of table salt by an adult.
TLDR
Current evidence suggests that chronic myelocytic leukemia is a clonal disorder of a pluripotential hematopoietic stem cell17 since the Philadelphia chromosome marker can be found not only in polymorphonuclear leukocytes but also in precursors of red cells, eosinophils and platelets.
Fatal voluntary salt intake resulting in the highest ever documented sodium plasma level in adults (255 mmol L−1): a disorder linked to female gender and psychiatric disorders
TLDR
Fatal voluntary salt intake resulting in the highest ever documented sodium plasma level in adults (255 mmol’L−1) and a disorder linked to female gender and psychiatric disorders (Case Report) are identified.
