In brief: Unmeasured anions

High anion gap reveals the presence of an unusual anion in high concentration.
This may be something as simple as lactate ion from exercise or underperfusion of the body, or a substance such as aspirin, a ketoacid, oxalate in ethylene glycol poisoning, or sulfate / phosphate in kidney failure.
