Abstract: We describe the case of a patient with hyperammonemia owing to urinary tract infections. The patient, a 66-year-old-woman, was previously diagnosed with bilateral hydronephrosis. She was admitted to the emergency room with macrohematuria and bilateral lumbar pain, which persisted for 2 days. She was hospitalized with the diagnosis of pyelonephritis. Despite antibiotic treatment, she developed sudden disturbance in consciousness on the 2nd day of illness. To improve the hyperammonemia and metabolic acidosis, we initiated continuous hemodiafiltration (CHDF) and urinary drainage by bilateral nephrostomy, after which her consciousness improved, and she was discharged on day 19. For patients with urinary tract infections and who are unaware of disturbance in consciousness, it is important to consider that obstructive urinary tract infections can cause hyperammonemia.
