Abstract
Colchicine; a microtubule polymerization inhibitor; has been reported to cause myoneuropathy; and myotonia. Rhabdomyolysis induced by colchicine was rarely reported; although patients with impaired renal function appear to be a higher risk for colchicine induced neuromuscular adverse effects. Herein we report a case of a 56?year?old man who developed rhabdomyolysis after colchicine treatment for recurrent gout attacks; which was successfully treated with cessation of medication and hemodialysis.
Key Words: Colchicine, Gout, Rhabdomyolysis
