Publication types: Case Reports ; English Abstract ; Journal ArticlePublication Status: ppublish
A 65 year old alcoholic man was hospitalized because he was tired, hypotonic, with postural tremor. The neurologic symptoms increased during the first two days despite an adequate therapy for alcoholic weaning with hydratation, benzodiazepines and vitamins. A severe hypophosphatemia is diagnosed, associated with hypovitaminosis D, mild hypomagnesemia, mild hypokaliemia and a refeeding syndrome. 24 hours after the normalisation of his phosphatemia, the neurologic symptoms are adjusted.
