Abstract

We present a case of a 66-year-old male with a past history of newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin lymphoma, diabetes, and recent surgical splenectomy secondary to splenic infarct who presented to the Emergency Department (ED) with several nonspecific symptoms that were consistent with tumor lysis syndrome. This case report discusses the clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management of spontaneous tumor lysis syndrome.
