Abstract

Tumor lysis syndrome refers to the laboratory and clinical results of rapid breakdown of high volumes of malignant cells. Significant electrolyte disturbances, particularly hyperkalemia, hypocalcemia, and hyperphosphatemia, in tandem with severe hyperuricemia, are disease hallmarks. The most significant clinical sequelae of these disturbances include life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias, sudden death, seizures, and renal failure due to precipitation of uric acid or calcium phosphate in the renal tubules.
