Poster Abstract

Osmotic demyelination syndrome (ODS) is the irreversible demyelination of the central pons, among other areas of the brain, that is most often associated with rapid correction of hyponatremia. Per contra, reversible ODS is a rare state that can be seen in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on hemodialysis (HD). This clinical case offers an alternative problem representation for acute altered mental status in a patient with ESRD on HD.
