Abstract
Hyperthermia can cause severe complications such as rhabdomyolysis,
which can induce acute kidney injury. Normal
thermoregulation can be disturbed by high fever, and maintenance
of a normal body temperature by external cooling can reduce
oxygen consumption, and increase vascular tone. Several studies
have been conducted to determine the effectiveness of external
cooling in treat rhabdomyolysis or renal failure. We report a case of
rhabdomyolysis leading to multiple organ dysfunction, including
renal failure. The use of an external cooling device achieved fever
control and successfully treated rhabdomyolysis and renal failure.
