Rhabdomyolysis without detectable myoglobulinuria
due to severe hypophosphatemia in diabetic ketoacidosis.
Myoglobulinuria that occurs as a result of myositis and rhabdomyolysis may result in kidney failure.
Myositis and rhabdomyolysis, causing an elevated CPK level and myoglobulinuria, have no significant effects on children.
Myoglobulinuria will be present accounting for the colour change of urine.
Levels of muscular enzymes CK, myoglobin, ALT, AST, LDH and aldolase were extremely elevated, and a urinalysis established the presence of myoglobulinuria. Genetic causes of the syndrome were ruled out, the patient did not take any medications, consume alcohol, cigarettes or illicit drugs and had no allergies to food or other substances.
Furthermore, we compared TnT 1 and TnT 2 results in the following individual cases: a case with extensive hypoxic skeletal muscle injury and increased total CK, a rhabdomyolysis in hereditary myoglobulinuria
, a progressing dermatomyositis, a pressure-induced skeletal muscle injury, and a decubitus case.
Colors other than yellow could indicate conditions such as blood in the urine (hematuria), the result of overexercising and causing myoglobulinuria
(myoglobin in the urine) or aftermath of crash injuries.
