The spectrum of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) endocrinopathy is large. Adrenal insufficiency (AI) is common in both early and late stages of HIV syndrome, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. However, rhabdomyolysis is a muscle disease in which striated muscle fibers disintegrate, excreting myoglobin in the urine, leading to acute kidney failure. It is currently reported that rhabdomyolysis may be a direct result of the HIV infection, especially in the advanced stages of HIV/AIDS disease. This case study reports AI and a mild rhabdomyolysis in a patient with no medical history and no medicine or toxic intake. Laboratory assessment revealed HIV infection.
