Spontaneous tumour lysis syndrome is characterized by hyperuricemia, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, metabolic acidosis and hypocalcemia, that occur even prior to the treatment of a neoplasm. This rare occurrence was encountered in a patient with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), of follicular cell type. Conservative but intensive treatment led to complete resolution. Subsequent chemotherapy was well tolerated.
