Perioperative renal dysfunction is a common problem following urogenital surgery. The most common causes of renal failure include ischemic or nephrotoxic acute tubular necrosis, renal vascular injury, and urinary tract obstruction. This case conference describes a patient who developed acute renal failure, secondary to rhabdomyolysis after a 7-hour urologic surgical procedure in an exaggerated lithotomy position. Early diagnosis and aggressive treatment are essential to prevent or limit the severity of acute renal failure. A review of the literature and pathophysiology of acute renal failure secondary to rhabdomyolysis is included.
