Abstract: The short bowel syndrome appears for the reduction of intestinal absorptive surface due to functional or anatomical loss of part of the small bowel. We present the case of a 35-year-old woman with severe short bowel syndrome secondary to acute intestinal ischemia in adults, who presented at 5 years of evolution episodes of dizziness with gait instability and loss of strength in hands. The diagnosis was D-lactic acidosis. D-lactic acidosis is a rare complication, but important for their symptoms, of this syndrome. It is due to a change in intestinal flora secondary to an overgrowth of lactic acid bacteria that produce D-lactate. D-lactic acidosis should be looked for in cases of metabolic acidosis in which the identity of acidosis is not apparent, neurological manifestations without focality and the patient has short bowel syndrome or patients who have had jejunoileal bypass surgery. Appropriate treatment usually results in resolution of neurologic symptoms and prevents or reduces further recurrences.

Se presenta el caso de una mujer de 35 años con síndrome de intestino corto severo secundario a isquemia intestinal aguda en la edad adulta, que presenta a los 5 años de evolución episodios de mareos con inestabilidad en la marcha y pérdida de fuerza en las manos, llegándose al diagnóstico de acidosis D-láctica. La acidosis D-láctica representa una complicación infrecuente, pero importante por su sintomatología, de este síndrome. Se debe a un cambio en la flora intestinal debido a un sobrecrecimiento de bacterias acidolácticas, que producen D-lactato. Debe sospecharse en aquellos casos de acidosis sin causa aparente y manifestaciones neurológicas sin focalidad en pacientes con síndrome de intestino corto o intervenidos de by-pass yeyuno-ileal. El tratamiento apropiado resuelve con frecuencia los síntomas neurológicos y previene o reduce las recurrencias.
