Rhabdomyolysis is a clinical emergency that can result in life-threatening complications. The etiology for rhabdomyolysis is broad. Infecitons are the most common cause in pediatric patients. Underlying inherited metabolic diseases are also a cause of rhabdomyolysis and can often have a diagnostic challenge, considering their marked heterogeneity and comparative rarity. The purpose of this review is to summarize the essential characteristics and diagnostic clues of inborn errors of metabolism associated with rhabdomyolysis.

Keywords: Rhabdomyolysis, inborn errors of metabolism, diagnosis
