Published Web Location
No data is associated with this publication.

A 65-year-old female presented to radiation oncology for potential treatment options due to metastatic pancreatic cancer and significant abdominal pain. Imaging demonstrated a large pancreatic mass with lymphadenopathy, vascular encasement, and liver metastases. She initiated palliative radiation treatment and developed persistent nausea and vomiting, as well as significant laboratory derangements. She was subsequently admitted and diagnosed with tumor lysis syndrome, though this diagnosis is usually an oncologic emergency seen with hematologic malignancies following chemotherapy.
