Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.261
ABSTRACT
 
Rhabdomyolysis is caused by myocyte necrosis, which results in the release of muscular cell contents into the circulation and extracellular fluid. We present a case of rhabdomyolysis due to brucella infection without any complications. Following the treatment applied for brucella, creatinine kinase level was significantly reduced. Rhabdomyolysis associated with brucella is rare in children.
