The Case | Euglycemic ketoacidosis in a patient on continuous renal replacement therapy

A 55-year-old lung transplant recipient with hypertension, atrial fibrillation, and prior steroid-induced hyperglycemia presented with choledocholithiasis and subsequently developed cholangitis with septic shock requiring intensive care unit admission after stone extraction. She developed progressive oliguric acute kidney injury (200 ml urine output in 24 hours), which necessitated the initiation of continuous venovenous hemodialysis because of her respiratory status (blood flow 300 ml/min; dialysate flow 28 ml/kg/h [2000 ml/h]; [bicarbonate] 32 mEq/l; [glucose]  = 100 mg/dl).

It’s the news that the HIV community has been waiting four long decades for: the hint that maybe, just maybe, HIV can be cured. Dr. Xu Yu, a principal investigator at the Ragon Institute of Massachusetts General Hospital, MIT and Harvard, as well as an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, had to check and recheck her results to be sure.

This and many other areas of medicine are seen as solved problems by the powers that be simply because there is some form of treatment, even palliative treatment, in widespread use. That the treatment does little and many people die doesn't appear to motivate those who could fund progress. There is no sense of urgency and little sense of need. We might make the same comments in the case of atherosclerosis, a condition many consider to be adequ...
