Abstract

We report herein a patient who developed diclofenac-induced acute rhabdomyolysis and hypovolemic shock. Timely recognition and management led to rapid recovery. Awareness of this potentially life-threatening side-effect is very important to encourage sparing and selective use of this drug in clinical practice.
