Masquerading acidosis after cardiopulmonary bypass: a case of propionic acidemia and congenital heart disease.

The presence of an underlying inborn error of metabolism confounded the management of this patient in the postoperative period, resulting in therapeutic misdirection until the true etiology of hyperlactemia was recognized.
