Rhabdomyolysis is not a well-known complication in dengue fever and only a few cases are reported. We report a patient of dengue, with severe body ache and myalgia, passed reddish-brown urine with a very high creatine-phosphokinase level. He also developed oliguria, hypertension, and raised creatinine. This suggests rhabdomyolysis occurred which led to acute kidney injury. This can complicate otherwise stable patients with dengue and affect the outcome. This complication needs to be explored when a similar clinical picture is encountered.
