PMID:  1173649     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A second episode of myoglobinuric renal failure requiring dialysis developed in a muscular 30-year-old man. His first episode, which was not exercise-related, had occurred in childhood and was accompanied by chills, fever, and leukocytosis, whereas the second followed unaccustomed exertion 15 years later. Despite two occurrences of severe renal failure and intermittent episodes of myoglobinuria, renal function is presently normal. Idiopathic paroxysmal myoglobinuria may produce recurrent life-threatening acute renal failure; however, the prognosis for recovery, as evidenced by this case, appears favorable.
