Hereunder is presented a case report of a 77 year old man, who was admitted to hospital due to the symptoms of myopathy accompanied by CK, CK-MB and troponin elevation. Initially, myopathy is assumed to originate from statin treatment. However, there has not been recorded muscular enzymes’ decrease after either rehydration treatment or dropping out of atorvastatin. The abdominal ultrasound examination has shown tumorous changes in the area of caecum. There has been performed a colonoscopy examination which included taking a bioptic sample and adenocarcinoma has been confirmed. Thus, myopathy is considered to be paraneoplastic. Additionally, the signs of myopathy disappeared completely and there was muscular enzymes’ decrease after haemicolectomy.
