Abstract

We describe the case of a 38-year-old man with an hypokalaemic rhabdomyolysis and tetany as a presentation of celiac disease. We discuss the several electrolytic disturbances found in this patient with chronic diarrhoea and malabsorption syndrome and also the treatment which conduced to complete clinical resolution. We conclude that celiac disease should be considered a cause of hypokalaemic rhabdomyolysis.
