Acute Kidney Injury due to Rhabdomyolysis in H1N1 Influenza Infection.
Summary of "Acute Kidney Injury due to Rhabdomyolysis in H1N1 Influenza Infection."
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is rarely reported in the clinical course of H1N1 infection and this condition is strongly related with increasing of mortality risk. However, there are no sufficient data about the development of AKI due to H1N1 infections. The recent reports were documented for elevation of creatinine phosphokinase levels in the course of influenza infection, but rhabdomyolysis was rarely reported. Herein, we present a 28-year-old female patient and a 19-year-old male patient with AKI in the course of H1N1 influenza infection due to rhabdomyolysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Influenza A Virus, H1n1 Subtype
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 1 and neuraminidase 1. The H1N1 subtype was responsible for the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.
Acute Kidney Injury
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
Kidney Tubular Necrosis, Acute
Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.
Influenza In Birds
Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.
Acute or chronic inflammation of tissues surrounding the apical portion of a tooth, associated with the collection of pus, resulting from infection following pulp infection through a carious lesion or as a result of an injury causing pulp necrosis. (Dorland, 27th ed)
