We report a case of severe hyperkalemia and normal electrocardiogram in an ex-preterm infant with renal failure due to bilateral obstruction of pelvicalyceal system caused by renal fungal mycetoma. In spite of maximal serum potassium of 11.3 mmol/L the ECG did not show any changes associated with hyperkalemia.
