Tumor lysis syndrome is most often seen after the treatment of blood and solid malignancies. The resultant hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, hypocalcemia, and hyperuricemia can lead to life threatening complications. Expeditious evaluation and therapy are paramount in preventing the most serious sequelae of acute renal failure and fatal dysrhythmias.
