Abstract

A 24-year-old man was sent to the emergency unit and evaluated with the symptom of acute right-sided chest pain. Myocardial infarction and pulmonary embolism were excluded. A creatine kinase (CK) serum concentration of 17,034 U/l (normally up to 270) was found. The patient gave a history of excessive body-building exercises on the previous day. During the follow-up period symptoms resolved within several days, and CK values gradually diminished. A review of current literature on rhabdomyolysis in patients with body-building is presented.
