An adolescent with acute lymphoblastic leukemia developed an early and severe tumor lysis syndrome with acute kidney injury after a low and single dose of steroids. Renal dysfunction was attributed primarily to phosphate nephropathy with nephrocalcinosis due to extreme elevations of phosphate in blood. Urinary alkalinization probably contributed to this development. We used peritoneal dialysis with resolution of nephrocalcinosis and normalization of creatinine clearance.
