Severe high anion gap metabolic acidosis in pregnancy

Severe high anion gap metabolic acidosis in pregnancy

Iranian Journal of Kidney Diseases 7(3): 235-236

Ketoacidosis can occur most often as a result of uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. However, it can be seen with fasting and alcohol consumption, as well. Ketoacidosis in association with fasting has less severity, and ketoacid levels do not exceed 10 mEq/L. In the literature, there are a few reports about severe high anion gap acidosis that were associated with fasting. We report a case of pregnancy associated with high anion gap acidosis as a result of fasting.
