Polyethylene glycol (PEG) electrolyte lavage solution and sodium phosphate solution are used for bowel cleansing before performing colonoscopy. PEG electrolyte lavage solution is the most widely used because PEG is absorbed by intestinal mucosa in only very small amounts and it very well cleans the bowels. The minor side-effects associated with PEG solution, i.e., nausea, vomiting and abdominal distention, are relatively common. However, PEG electrolyte lavage solution-induced acute renal failure has rarely been reported on. We report here on a case of acute renal failure after bowel preparation with using polyethylene glycol. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2007; 34:161⁣163)
