Abstract:

Alcoholism is on the rise and it has widespread impact on the health of a person. Non traumatic rhabdomyolysis is one such effect of rhabdomyolysis. Though this condition is reversible, early diagnosis and meticulous management of fluid electrolyte imbalance is crucial to prevent morbidity and mortality in these patients. We present here a case of 58 year old non-diabetic non hypertensive male with history of alcohol binge followed by unconsciousness. He presented with confusing neurological symptoms and acute kidney injury requiring dialysis therapy. The diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis was delayed by a day but subsequently managed successfully. We discuss the management challenges and give an inside to alcohol related rhabdomyolysis.
