Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is one of the most serious acute metabolic complications of diabetes. The triad of uncontrolled hyperglycemia, metabolic acidosis, and increased total body ketone concentration characterizes DKA. Not all patients with ketoacidosis have DKA, and other situations can result in metabolic acidosis and ketonemia, like starvation ketosis, alcoholic ketoacidosis or ingestion of drugs such as salicylate, methanol, ethylene glycol. We report a case of acetone intoxication that was misdiagnosed as diabetic ketoacidosis.
Key Words: Diabetic ketoacidosis, Acetone intoxication, Acidosis
