FRANQUELO MORALES, Pablo; ALRAMADAM ALRAMADAM, Mubarak; PRADA DE MEDIO, Enrique  and  GONZALEZ MARTINEZ, Félix. Chronic creatinine elevation. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2009, vol.2, n.8, pp.434-437. ISSN 2386-8201.

Myopathy is a disease that affects the musculoskeletal system with elevated serum creatinine. Addison´s Disease and Malignant Hyperthermia, are rare causes of myopathy. Addison´s disease also known as primary adrenal insufficiency, occurs when the adrenal gland does not produce enough glucocorticoids, mineralcorticoids and androgens because of the destruction of the adrenal cortex. Symptoms are non specific and it is treated with hydrocortisone. Malignant Hyperthemia is a genetic disorder, in which inhaled anaesthetics and muscle relaxants, trigger progressive hyperthermia with muscle rigidity, tachycardia, hypotension, rhabdomyolysis, and disseminated intravascular coagulation.

Keywords : Addison Disease; Malignant Hyperthermia; Creatine Kinase.
