Abstract
Rhabdomyolysis has been reported as a cause of acute renal failure(ARF), and it can arise from traumatic and variable non-traumatic events. Rhabdomyolysis-induced ARF is very rare in children. We experienced a case of rhabdomyolysis-induced ARF in a 14-year-old boy who presented with generalized edema and oliguria following trauma, a compressed thigh by a cultivator. Laboratory tests showed marked elevation of muscle enzymes(aspatate aminotransferase, creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase), increased serum and urine myoglobin, and other laboratory abnormalities showing ARF. Ten days after continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration using catheterization of the femoral artery and vein, the daily urine output gradually increased and he recoverd. We report this case with brief review of literature.
