Severe refeeding hypophosphatemia has been reported in infants and adults on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. We report an episode of transient encephalopathy and cardiac suppression in a diabetic, malnourished end-stage renal disease patient undergoing peritoneal dialysis with a glucosebased solution, which was associated with severe hypophosphatemia. Further investigation revealed an adynamic bone disease. The potential factors precipitating this episode of hypophosphatemia are discussed.
