A CASE REPORT ON ENTERIC FEVER INDUCED HYPOPHOSPHATEMIA

Authors

Abstract

ABSTRACT
Hypophosphatemia is critical ill patients are a common entity which causes unnoticed most of the time. This can lead to considerable morbidity and in
some cases contribute to mortality. A 20-year-old female patient presented to Emergency Medicine with complaints of diarrhea, breathing difficulty, and
tachypnea. Her routine electrolyte investigation showed low phosphate level. Once hypophosphatemia was corrected with intravenous phosphorous,
patient became symptomatically better. In this study, we encounter that enteric fever can also be a factor for symptomatic hypophosphatemia and
it should be corrected even if it is mild. Therefore, this case emphasis on importance of correcting symptomatic hypophosphatemia in critically ill
patients.
Keywords: Enteric fever, Hypophosphatemia, Emergency medicine.
