[en] Metformin is an oral antidiabetic largely prescribed in the treatment of type II diabetes. Overdose is associated with life-threatening lactic acidosis. We report the case of the highest metformin concentration ever described secondary to a voluntary suicidal intake.
The patient developed a severe lactic acidosis and hemodynamic shock successfully treated with high-flow hemofiltration. Time to start extrarenal epuration is capital to avoid poor evolution.
