Toxic shock syndrome is frequently complicated by renal dysfunction. The mechanism of this functional disturbance is unclear. The present report concerns a 33-year-old woman with reversible renal failure in the course of toxic shock syndrome owing to rhabdomyolysis. It is suspected that the renal consequences of muscle injury play a pathophysiological role in the acute renal failure of toxic shock syndrome. 

A Rare Case of Staphylococcal Toxic Shock Syndrome in a Neonate

Doctors should be familiar with the clinical presentation of the disease to make early diagnosis of TSS, as there is no single test to diagnose TSS and it is uncommon in neonates.

Acute renal failure in a patient receiving treatment with suramin.

A patient with metastatic prostate cancer who developed nonoliguric renal failure during treatment with suramin is described and his renal function gradually recovered with the cessation of suramin treatment.

Animal studies of toxic shock syndrome.

The baboon is identified as an animal model of TSS and the clinical and pathologic sequellae, in this species, after exposure to purified toxic shock toxin are discussed.

Rhabdomyolysis and Myoglobinuria

This chapter reviews the present state of knowledge of the clinical and biochemical diagnosis of rhabdomyolysis, its pathophysiology, classification, provocative factors and associated diseases, and the management of patients including diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines.

Rhabdomyolysis in a Child Secondary to Staphylococcus aureus Endocarditis

The first reported case of rhabdomyolysis in a child secondary to Staphylococcus aureus endocarditis is described, involving a 12-year-old child who presented with myalgia, pyrexia and dark urine and was found to have infectiveendocarditis due to S. a Aureus.

Rhabdomyolysis and Staphylococcus aureus septicemia in a man with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.

The authors' experience, described herein, suggests the inclusion of acute pancreatitis in the differential diagnosis of acute abdominal pain in IL-2-treated patients and recommends conservative therapy for the initial treatment of IL2-associated pancreatitis.

Pathology of Acute Renal Failure

The pathology of acute renal failure (ARF) as it is encountered in the mid- 1990s reflects the changing character of the patients developing this condition and the renal morphologic alterations that accompany some types of ARF in critically ill patients remain largely unknown.
