Abstract 1 Two cases of drug-induced rhabdomyolysis, one of them presenting with acute myoglobinuric renal failure are described. 2 The pathogenesis of rhabdomyolysis and renal failure in our cases is discussed with reference to work published by other authors. 3 Whereas there seems to be obvious evidence for direct toxic drug-muscle interaction, the mechanism for the development of myoglobinuric renal failure remains unclear.
