Abstract

A 15-year-old Chinese boy developed rhabdomyolysis with myoglobinuria and marked elevation of serum creatine phosphokinase following a prolonged and severe attack of asthma. He recovered after vigorous hydration and supportive treatment. Clinicians should be aware of this potentially fatal, albeit rare, complication of status asthmaticus.
