IHA is characterized by a sudden increase in plasma ammonia levels in the absence of any identifiable causes, which mostly results in intractable coma and high mortality. It has been reported in some patients after receiving intensive chemotherapy for hematological malignancy or HSCT. We describe a case of a patient with FA that developed acute idiopathic hyperammonemia after the preparative regimen for HSCT.
