ERTUğRUL, Sabahattin et al. Recurrent rhabdomyolysis in a child: Case presentation. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.3, pp.e191-e194. ISSN 0325-0075.

Viral myositis associated with infections rarely may cause rhabdomyolysis. There is no any pediatric case with severe recurrent rhabdomyolysis triggered by infections in the literature. We reported a two-year-old boy who was hospitalized three times due to severe rhabdomyolysis associated with viral myositis in the winter months. This is the first child case presentation with severe rhabdomyolysis triggered by infections. Prednisolone and intravenous immunoglobulin treatments were ineffective in this case.

Keywords : Rhabdomyolysis acute recurrent; Infection; Respiratory syncytial virus; Pediatrics.
