LASSO B, Martín; PEREZ G, Jorge; NORIEGA R, L. Miguel  e  NORTHLAND A, Rebeca. Fatal lactic acidosis in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome treated with highly active antiretroviral therapy: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2000, vol.128, n.10, pp.1139-1143. ISSN 0034-9887.

Type B lactic acidosis occurs without any evidence of cellular hypoxia and is associated with the use of drugs or toxins. We report a 36 years old woman with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome that was admitted to the hospital with a severe lactic acidosis. She had been treated with didanosine, stavudine and efavirenz for four months prior to admission. Despite the use of high bicarbonate doses and vasoactive drugs, the patient had a catastrophic evolution and died in shock and multiple organ failure, 68 hours after admission. (Rev Méd Chile 2000; 128: 1139-43).
