Answer

Renal failure as a result of tumor lysis syndrome from therapy is a potential risk in all patients, especially those with a high tumor burden. Aggressive management of this potentially life-threatening complication should be clearly addressed. Early hemodialysis should be considered in these patients to prevent long-term renal dysfunction.
