High Anion Gap Metabolic Acidosis
In the previous chapter, we presented various causes of high anion gap (AG) metabolic acidosis. For discussion purpose, these causes can be conveniently divided into the following categories: acidosis due to kidney injury; acidosis due to accumulation of organic acids; and acidosis due to toxins. Metabolic acidosis affects almost all organ systems; however, the following are the most important clinical manifestations: cardiovascular, neurologic, and respiratory.
