    Abstract

    Computed tomography scans were performed on two patients who presented with clinical rhabdomyolysis and acute renal failure secondary to myoglobinuria. Localized muscle swelling with patchy focal areas of low attenuation were demonstrated. Computed tomography may be helpful to clarify the nature and extent of the muscle injury in the appropriate medical setting.
