Abstract

We present a rare case of para-influenza type 1 virus-induced rhabdomyolysis, complicated by acute renal failure (ARF). The child underwent continuous venovenous haemofiltration and has shown full clinical and biochemical recovery. ARF due to rhabdomyolysis in para-influenza type 1 infection in a child has, to the best of our knowledge, not been previously reported.
