Rhabdomyolysis and Acute Renal Failure in an Adolescent With Coronavirus Disease 2019.J Pediatric Infect Dis Soc. 2020 Sep 17; 9(4):507-509.JP
There is growing appreciation of the wide range of clinical presentations seen in pediatric patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Rhabdomyolysis appears to be a rare, but potentially serious, manifestation of COVID-19. Here, we report an adolescent with COVID-19-associated rhabdomyolysis who required hemodialysis due to acute kidney injury. Pediatric providers should consider rhabdomyolysis and the possibility of acute renal failure in children with COVID-19.
