Resumen

HUIDOBRO E., Juan Pablo; SANTANDER, Jaime; VICENTINI, Daniel  y  JARA, Aquiles. Hipercalcemia severa en el curso de rabdomiolisis: caso clínico. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2019, vol.147, n.1, pp.125-129. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872019000100125.

Rhabdomyolysis (RD) is the process that leads to cell destruction of striated muscle. Causes include inherited metabolic defects or acquired disorders. RD is frequently associated with acute kidney injury (AKI) and disorders of calcium metabolism. We report a 33 year old man that after amphetamine consumption and an uninterrupted 3,000 km driving presented vomiting, muscle pain and dark urine. He had elevated creatinkinase levels, severe hypocalcemia and an acute renal failure. He was treated with hemodialysis and calcitriol. He was transferred to our hospital and on admission a serum calcium of 18 mg/dl was detected. He continued on hemodialysis, recovering renal function and with normalization of creatinkinase levels and serum calcium level.
