Abstract

Optimal treatment of severe hyponatremia in patients requiring dialysis is not known. Rapid correction with the use of different dialysis modalities can lead to osmotic demyelination syndrome. We described a safe correction of severe hyponatremia in a 42-year-old male patient requiring dialysis, who was treated with continuous venovenous hemofiltration using hypotonic replacement fluid which was prepared and adjusted on a daily basis.
