Chiarenza L., Pignataro A., Lanza V.

Buccheri La Ferla Hospital, Palermo, Italy


FULL TEXT  


Refeeding syndrome is a very serious disorder that is not often observed today, as it is more common during times of mass starvation or war. Nowadays, it is sometimes found in patients suffering from anorexia nervosa or neoplastic diseases. A case recently treated in our Intensive Care Unit is described. The patient was pregnant and suffering from Crohn’s disease. It is emphasized that although refeeding syndrome is often fatal if not treated early, it is easily prevented or treated with adequate nutritional support.
