Activity Description

Tumor lysis syndrome is the most common oncologic emergency. This condition is prevalent in both adult and pediatric oncology patients undergoing chemotherapy, though it can also occur spontaneously. Most of the symptoms seen in patients with tumor lysis syndrome are related to the release of intracellular chemical substances that cause impairment in the functions of target organs. This can lead to acute kidney injury (AKI), fatal arrhythmia, and even death. This activity reviews the evaluation and management of tumor lysis syndrome. It highlights the role of interprofessional team members in collaborating to provide well-coordinated care and enhance outcomes for affected patients.


Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and nurse practitioners.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Assess the electrolyte abnormalities associated with tumor lysis syndrome.

  • Evaluate how tumor lysis syndrome can lead to end-organ failure.

  • Interpret how to stratify tumors based on the risk of developing tumor lysis syndrome.

  • Communicate how an interprofessional approach is imperative to the effective management of patients with tumor lysis syndrome.
