Abstract

Despite of the improved water purification system, the decreased use of aluminum based phosphate binding gels and periodic determination of serum aluminum levels, aluminum accumulation cannot be eliminated. We experienced a case of acute encephalopathy in aluminum intoxication with subdural hematoma presenting myoclonic jerk and mental change in a end stage renal failure. She was treated succesfully with low dose DFO treatment for 3 month.
