Title
A case of fatal alcoholic ketoacidosis
Author
Abstract
Alcoholic ketoacidosis is an acid-base disturbance which is often observed in chronic alcoholic patients when drinking is ceased after a period of excessive alcohol intake. Dehydration and little food intake are frequently present in these patients. It is very important for the treatment of alcoholic ketoacidosis that a distinction with diabetic ketoacidosos is made. The authors present a case of alcoholic ketoacidosis that ended fatally, probably due to pathophysiological conditions induced by long-term alcohol abuse.
