Abstract Myoglobin-associated kidney injury typically is seen in severe rhabdomyolysis. Nontraumatic rhabdomyolysis may be triggered by direct drug toxicity, drug-drug interactions, and individual patient myopathic risk factors. We present a case of myoglobin-associated kidney failure in the setting of repeated ciprofloxacin administration in a lung transplant patient. Kidney biopsy was critical to establishing the diagnosis and avoiding future exposure. Copyright Â© 2012 National Kidney Foundation, Inc. Published by Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
