Wet Beriberi associated with Rhabdomyolysis
AbstractMalnutrition and undernutrition are frequently encountered in everyday
practice. Thiamin deficiency resulting in Beriberi disease is
underrecognized. Here we report a case of cardiac Beriberi associated
with rhabdomyolysis, both successfully treated with high dose Thiamin.
We also provide possible explanation of the underlying mechanism based
on literature review.
