Background:  Rhabdomyolysis is an acute condition of muscle cell damage and subsequent release of intracellular components into the  systemic circulation. Potentially, muscle repair mechanisms in these patients could lead to expression of cardiac troponins  in non-heart-cells and release during repair phase, hence leading to false suspicion of acute myocardial infarction. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate cardiac troponin levels in patients with rhabdomyolysis to see whether levels  are influences by non-cardiac disease.
