Rhabdomyolysis following recent severe coxsackie virus infection in patient with chronic renal failure: one case report and a review of the literature.

Coxsackie virus infection may be life-threatening, although in most cases, it is asymptomatic. Coxsackie virus infection can cause rhabdomyolysis. This study reports a 39-year-old female patient with chronic renal failure who presented with fever, myalgia, anuria, edema, vomiting, diarrhea, exacerbation of renal function, elevation of serum CK, CK-MB, CK-MM, myoglobin, and liver function abnormality. Serology for Coxsackie virus IgM antibody was positive at first, and IgG antibody became positive 4 weeks later. Muscle biopsy showed skeletal muscle denaturalization and necrosis. She underwent hemodialysis three times per week and then kidney transplantation. No evidence suggests relapse of Coxsackie virus infection 5 months after transplantation. As illustrated with the present case, serological testing may reveal an early, quick, and simple diagnosis in a case of rhabdomyolysis after a viral illness.
