Phenformin-associated lactic acidosis due to imported phenformin



Phenformin-associated lactic acidosis due to imported phenformin



Diabetes Care 19(12): 1449-1450



To emphasize the continued incidence of phenformin-associated lactic acidosis. We report a case of phenformin-associated lactic acidosis in a Chinese man who received phenformin while in China. Diagnosis was made; the patient was treated appropriately and survived. Phenformin-associated lactic acidosis may still occur in the U.S.
