Abstract

A variety of conditions can lead to rhabdomyolysis. Only a few cases of rhabdomyolysis resulting from near-drowning exist in the literature. We describe a victim of near-drowning who developed rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure requiring dialysis. We review the existing literature on near-drowning-induced rhabdomyolysis and discuss the possible pathogenesis.
