Abstract

A patient with rhabdomyolysis-induced acute renal failure due to influenza B virus infection is presented. Influenza B infection caused rhabdomyolysis with efflux of myoglobin from myocytes, causing acute renal failure. In conclusion, influenza virus type B can cause severe rhabdomyolysis leading to acute renal failure.
