Selçuk Ergen


Metabolic disorders such as hyperuricaemia and hyperuricaemic renal failure, hyperkalaemia and hyperphosphataemia in hematological malignancies with high tumour burden and high turnover and rarely in solid malignancies are defined as acute tumour lysis syndrome. It frequently occurs after treatment (chemotherapy / radiotherapy) and rarely occurs before treatment. In this case, it is called spontaneous acute tumour lysis syndrome. We aimed to remind this rare clinical entity with high mortality risk by presenting a patient with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and acute spontaneous tumour lysis syndrome.

Keywords: Acute spontaneous tumour lysis syndrome, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, renal failure
