The authors consider the finite volume approximation of a reaction-diffusion system with fast reversible reaction. It is deduced from a priori estimates that the approximate solution converges to the weak solution of the reaction-diffusion problem and satisfies estimates which do not depend on the kinetic rate. It follows that the solution converges to the solution of a nonlinear diffusion problem, as the size of the volume elements and the time steps converge to zero while the kinetic rate tends to infinity.
