Abstract

Malnutrition 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.
