Sir, While hyperkalemia probably remains the most common cause of death in renal failure, we wish to record the unusual survival of a patient who recovered after having a serum potassium level of 12.5 M Eq/L. The patient, a 24 year old man with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, had been treated by regular dialysis for about a year and had been found on several occasions to have potassium levels of 6 to 7 M Eq/L. Following the omission of one dialysis treatment, he was admitted in a confused…
