Abstract

A 38-year-old male presented with renal failure in the setting of a flu-like illness. Urinalysis showed myoglobinuria and granular casts. His serum creatine phosphokinase was markedly elevated. He was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis and was volume resuscitated with normal saline and bicarbonate-containing fluid. Workup included a respiratory viral panel which was positive for adenovirus. Other causes such as trauma, seizure, and intoxicants were excluded. He developed progressive renal failure necessitating hemodialysis. After ~ 4 weeks he recovered renal function and dialysis was discontinued. Viral-induced myopathy should be suspected in patients who present with rhabdomyolysis.
