Özet

Lactic acidosis is a metabolic acidosis caused by either overproduction or underutilization of lactic acid. Overproduction of lactic acid, known as type A lactic acidosis, is frequent in critically ill patients with hypoperfusion states. Underutilization of lactic acid, known as type B lactic acidosis, is caused by many reasons, including hepatic and liver failure, thiamine deficiency, toxins, drugs, and certain malignancies such as lymphomas and leukemias. We report a patient with severe lactic acidosis and Burkitt's lymphoma without any signs of hypoperfusion that is relieved with chemotherapy.
