Acute renal failure is one of the most common complications of rhabdomyolysis. Rhabdomyolysis is a serious syndrome and should be suspected in patients presenting after direct or indirect muscle injury, seizures, strenuous exercise, crush injuries and ingestion of drug or toxins. Rhabdomyolysis secondary to status epilepticus is a serious complication, leading to life threatening acute renal failure. Therefore, early recognition of risk of rhamdomylosis in status epilepticus and initiation of treatment is important.
