Abstract

We present a patient with end-stage kidney disease receiving hemodialysis therapy who developed severe metabolic alkalosis secondary to vomiting. This case illustrates the important differences in pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management of this common acid-base disorder in patients without kidney function. The diagnostic approach and management strategy for metabolic alkalosis are discussed, highlighting the special issues to be considered in dialysis patients.
