A Rare Presentation of Acute Kidney Injury Secondary to Rhabdomyolysis as a Result of Child Abuse
AbstractChild abuse leads to substantial health problems and is extremely worrisome to the pediatric medical community. The child presented in our case was a victim of severe physical abuse leading to rhabdomyolysis, AKI, subsequently requiring renal replacement therapy. The objective of this case is to raise awareness and advise checking renal function, CK and myoglobin in bruised children subjugated to physical abuse. Child abuse leading to severe decline in renal function is rare and needs to be recognized in a timely manner and adequately treated.
