Rhabdomyolysis is a clinical syndrome characterized by the breakdown of skeletal muscle fibers and the release of intracellular
muscle constituents into the circulation and extracellular fluid. The clinical picture of rhabdomyolysis can range
from asymptomatic conditions with elevated creatinine kinase (CK) levels in serum through to life-threatening conditions
associated with extreme elevations of CK and myoglobin levels, myoglobinuria, dysbalance of ions, acute kidney
injury and disseminated intravascular coagulation.
