GARAMENDI GONZALEZ, PM.. Rhabdomyolysis after strenuous physical exercise: A case report. Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2005, n.41, pp.183-189. ISSN 1135-7606.
It´s reported a case of not complicated Rhabdomyolysis in a young man after having been detained in a police station for 4 days. The detainee claimed to have been subject of an ill-treatment consistent in a forced exposure to strenuous physical exercise. After having considered main causes of rhabdomyolysis and natural course of the syndrome in similar cases it is suggested a relation between both facts: uncomplicated rhabdomyolysis and ill-treatment. Myoglobine and muscle enzymes can also be analyzed in blood and urine as a part of the protocols for the diagnosis of physical ill-treatment.
