A 30-year-old Indian man presented with progressive renal impairment following a seizure. The complaint of troublesome back pain led to the suspicion of rhabdomyolysis being the cause of acute renal failure. The diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis was supported by a markedly elevated serum creatinine phosphokinase level. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a right paraspinal muscle tear. The patient underwent haemodialysis and subsequently had a rapid and complete recovery.
