Abstract

Hereditary renal hypouricaemia (HRH) is a genetic disorder commonly associated with exercise-induced acute kidney injury (AKI). We report the case of a 19-year-old man who was admitted to hospital with exercise-induced AKI and who was subsequently shown to have HRH. We believe this to be the first description of a case of HRH co-presenting with rhabdomyolysis.
