Rhabdomyolysis clinically presents with muscle pain, weakness and high total creatine kinase (CK) levels. Sometimes, there are very high levels of CK-total due to progressive muscle injury. This may lead to life threatening conditions like acute renal failure and disseminated intravascular coagulation. This case report illustrates the promptness in early diagnosis & the management that led to prevention of complications.
