Spontaneous Fatal Tumor Lysis Syndrome in a Patient with T-Cell Lymphoblastic Lymphoma/Leukemia: Successful Treatment with Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy and Increasing-Dose Gradually Chemotherapy

Abstract

Tumor Lysis Syndrome (TLS) results from massive necrosis or apoptosis of large proliferating tumors and is characterized by marked hyper uricemia, hyperkalemia, and hyper phosphatemia secondary to cell lysis and the metabolism of excessive nucleic acids. Clinically significant TLS, with end-organ compromise, occurs in approximately 5% of all patients with… (More)
