Abstract
A 29-year-old man was admitted to hospital with fever, myalgia, and sore throat. Initial laboratory findings were compatible with acute hepatitis; he was positive for the serologic marker for acute hepatitis A. On the 3rd day of admission, in spite of normalization of body temperature and a reduction in serum liver enzyme levels, serum levels of creatinine phosphokinase had increased up to 16,949 U/L. The patient recovered with supportive therapy and was discharged on the 12th day. We report a case of acute hepatitis A complicated by rhabdomyolysis during hospitalization.
