We describe 2 patients who developed rhabdomyolysis due to dengue virus infection. The first patient recovered with no sequelae, but the second developed multiple organ failure and died. Rhabdomyolysis is not well described as a complication of dengue virus infection and is probably underrecognized. All patients with severe dengue virus infection should undergo urinalysis, and serum creatinine kinase levels should be measured if urinalysis reveals heme.
