The inflammatory  myopathies include  a  group  of  diseases  characterized  by  chronic muscle inflammation associated with weakness. There are three main types, polymyositis, inclusion  body  myositis  and dermatomyositis.  In  here,  we  report  a  young  male  who developed a sudden attack of rhabdomyolysis with extreme elevation of creatine kinase (CK) and acute kidney injury. Muscle biopsy performed and revealed changes consistent with polymyositis. The patient condition improved dramatically to corticosteroid treatment.
