Our patient is a 42-year-old woman with muscle paralysis, muscle weakness, and fever. On admission, a neurologic examination showed proximal and distal weakness in the leg. Serum creatine phosphokinase and serum myoglobin level were markedly increased (5600 UI/L and 5197 UI/L, respectively). There was no sign of renal failure. Nerve conduction study was negative. Serologic studies for virus titers showed the antibody immunoglobulin M cytomegalovirus. Muscle weakness and its paralysis, fever, and serum creatine kinase level gradually improved after the administration of methylprednisolone intravenous...

The 5-aminolevulinate synthase, heme oxygenase, tryptophan-2,3-dioxygenase activities, the content of total heme and cytochrome P-450 content in the rat liver and absorption spectrum of blood serum in Soret region under glycerol model of rhabdomiolisis and hemolytic anemia caused by single phenylhydrazine injection have been investigated. The glycerol injection caused a considerable accumulation of heme-containing products in the serum and the increase of the total heme content, holoenzyme, total activity and heme saturation of tryptophan-2,3-dioxygenase, as well as the increase of the 5-aminolevulinate synthase and heme oxygenase activities in the liver during the first hours of its action and the decrease of cytochrome P-450 content in 24 h...
