Abstract

Rhabdomyolysis, or acute muscle destruction, may be accompanied by myoglobinemia, myoglobinuria, and an elevated serum creatine kinase level. The disorder has many potential causes, the most common one in otherwise healthy people being severe exercise. Rhabdomyolysis has many complications, but the most important one is acute renal failure. We describe a man with rhabdomyolysis-induced acute renal failure occurring after frog leaps. During 3 dialytic sessions, we practiced direct puncture of peripheral veins of the antecubital fossa as temporary vascular access for this patient. His renal function improved, after which he was discharged with a smooth clinical course.
