Title : The presentation of rhabdomyolysis in influenza B patients – a case series


Influenza B-associated rhabdomyolysis is relatively rare. Herein, we describe a retrospective case-series of five children hospitalized in a single institution for rhabdomyolysis from PCR-confirmed Influenza B. Viral sequencing revealed a novel deletion of one amino acid in the viral hemagglutinin, potentially explaining the unusual cluster of cases. Altogether, this work expands current knowledge on Influenza B-associated rhabdomyolysis in children.
