An Unusual Cause of Rhabdomyolysis with Acute Kidney Injury

Authors: Ankita Gharge, Shobhana Nayak Rao and Pradeep Shenoy M

Abstract: Rhabdomyolysis is a serious syndrome due to a direct or indirect muscle injury. It results from the death of muscle fibers and release of their contents into the bloodstream. It can result from a variety of etiologies which may include traumatic or non-traumatic causes. Rhabdomyolysis due to hanging is extremely uncommon and not described in literature. This case highlights rhabdomyolysis as a potential complication of hanging.

Serotonin Syndrome: Fairly Common but Frequently Forgotten

Authors: Awad Magbri, MD, FACP, Mariam El-Magbri, BSC, MPH, Kamran Suljuki, Phama D, MBA, and Darcy Rose, RN

The patient is presented with classical features of the syndrome with hyper-excitability, tremor, change in mental status, and low grade fever. The patient made uneventful recovery after the stoppage of the offending drugs. This case calls for the clinicians to be vigilant of the drug interaction that can cause unintended side effects to the patient under their care.

This is especially true for patients who are on renal replacement therapy, whose lives and whose family's lives have been changed by this dreaded illness. As nephrologists taking care of dialysis patients, we are witnesses to the effect chronic kidney disease has to the patient and their family.
