PMID:  20587768     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyolysis involves the release of intracellular contents secondary to muscle cell injury; it generally presents with muscle pain and weakness. Illicit drugs, including phencyclidine, MDMA ("ecstasy"), and cocaine, are frequently documented as a cause of rhabdomyolysis.
OBJECTIVE: The authors review the literature on LSD-associated rhabdomyolysis.
METHOD: The authors provide a new case report of a previously health patient who suffered rhabdomyolysis after LSD ingestion.
RESULTS: Although frequently listed as a cause of rhabdomyolysis, there are only limited reports of rhabdomyolysis in patients who have ingested LSD.
DISCUSSION: The discussion outlines potential mechanisms and management of LSD-associated rhabdomyolysis. Consultation psychiatrists may be called to assist in management of acute mental-status changes or agitation associated with LSD intoxication in addition to facilitating subsequent chemical-dependency treatment.
