Wereport the case of a 53 years old male with lactacidosis B1 and gastric Burkitt lymphoma whowas admitted to the hospital with constitutionalsymptoms, weight loss, diarrhea and melena.Arterial blood gases revealed a metabolic acidosis with increased anion gap (pH:7,278; HCO3-:9,1mmol/l; AG: 20) and elevated lactate (15,5mmol/l). Other causes of lactacidosis, as circula-tory failure, sepsis and shock were ruledout. Common causes of type B lactic acidosiswere also excluded, such as infections, diabetesmellitus, renal failure, liver failure, thiaminedeficiency, drugs and toxins.
