Metabolic alkalosis due to short bowel syndrome in a hemodialysis patient

AbstractA 53-year-old man on hemodialysis suffered from short bowel syndrome after subtotal colectomy and partial resection of the small intestine. Laboratory tests showed multiple electrolyte disorders and enlarged sodium and chloride ion (Cl−) gaps despite treatment with large volume of sodium chloride replacement via central venous infusion. Blood gas analysis showed slightly high bicarbonate ion levels and metabolic alkalosis was suspected, which is uncommon in end stage kidney disease. The measurement of electrolytes in feces from ileostomy showed relatively high Cl− excretion. The loss of Cl− to feces may have caused the metabolic alkalosis; thus, additional Cl− replacement may have been necessary.
