Rhabdomyolysis may occur due to muscle damage and myoglobinuria secondary to hyperreflexia, myoclonus, hypertonicity, and muscle rigidity.
Asymptomatic exercise-related muscular damage, with subclinical myoglobinemia, myoglobinuria, and increased creatine kinase level, is quite common.
Rhabdomyolysis is commonly associated with myoglobinuria. If this becomes sufficiently severe, it can result in ARF, weakness, myalgia, and tea-colored urine, which are the main clinical manifestations.
CK elevations substantially exceeding 11 times the upper limit of normal have been associated with rhabdomyolysis, along with muscle symptoms, pigment nephropathy, and brown urine with myoglobinuria. (8) Yet CK elevations following strenuous exercise vary widely, as do CK values associated with rhabdomyolysis.
Laboratory investigations recorded were serum creatinine, leucocyte count, SGPT, SGOT, serum bilirubin, serum alkaline phosphatase, serum, potassium, & calcium, serum CPK and evidence of myoglobinuria
Uncontrolled muscle spasms causing rhabdomyolysis and ultimately myoglobinuria resulting in acute renal failure has always remained an important factor in adult tetanus patients.23
Myoglobinuria is evidence of muscle cell lysis and is toxic to glomeruli; if myoglobinuria is detected, aggressive fluid treatment to prevent renal failure should be considered.
Necrosis of muscles causes increase in creatinine kinase (CK), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) levels, and results in myoglobinuria. Bone fractures, long-term compression, burns, and extreme exercise are the causes of this rare syndrome.

Typically, exertional rhabdomyolysis manifests as muscle pain and weakness, with transient elevation (>5-10 x normal) in serum creatine kinase (CK), with or without myoglobinuria [5].
Common symptoms of rhabdomyolysis include muscle pain, rashes, weakness, and dark colored urine due to myoglobinuria [8, 9].
It is noteworthy that mutation m.14846G>A, according to the literature, leading to a progressive exercise of intolerance, proximal limb weakness, and attacks of myoglobinuria, showed a protective effect on myocardial infarction at a high level of significance [32].
