52 Possible Causes for Myoglobinemia

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 7

    Myopathic forms: Type V and VII Glycogen deposition in muscle Muscle cramp after exercise Exercise induced lactic acidosis (block in glycolysis) There may be myoglobinemia[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 5

    Myoglobinuria — Especially after a contracture, the damaged muscle contents leak out of the torn cell and enter the bloodstream — myoglobinemia —and pass through the kidneys[]

  • Haff Syndrome

    Anything that will cause myoglobinuria will cause myoglobinemia.[]

  • Toluene Poisoning

    Toluene can affect skeletal muscles directly, resulting in rhabdomyolysis and myoglobinemia.[]

  • Gas Gangrene

    Pathologic demonstration of myonecrosis : Myoglobinemia and Myoglobinuria Radiographs showing gas within fascial planes Microbiology culture Non-specific findings CBC: Anemia[] Altered level of consciousness Hemolytic anemia Liver dysfunction Hyperkalemia Kidney dysfunction Metabolic acidosis Coagulopathy and thrombocytopenia Myoglobinemia and Myoglobinuria[]

  • Malignant Hyperthermia

    As a result, patients commonly develop myoglobinemia, myoglobinuria, hyperkalemia, hyperphosphatemia, and hypocalcemia.[] As the MH episode progresses, rhabdomyolysis leads to hyperkalemia, increased creatine phosphokinase, and myoglobinemia, and might result in acute renal failure.[] Laboratory monitoring parameters include arterial and venous blood gases, electrolytes, coagulation parameters, myoglobinemia, myoglobinuria, and creatine kinase.[]

  • Electrical Injury

    Massive muscle destruction causes myoglobinemia. Precipitation of myoglobin in the renal tubules can produce acute tubal necrosis and acute renal failure.[] In addition to organ tissue damage from electrical burns, sequela (secondary injury) of an electrical burn may include myoglobinemia .[]

  • Glycogen Storage Disease Type 2

    Late-onset glycogen storage disease type 2 (GSD2)/Pompe disease is a progressive multi-system disease evoked by a deficiency of lysosomal acid alpha-glucosidase (GAA) activity. GSD2 is characterized by respiratory and skeletal muscle weakness and atrophy, resulting in functional disability and reduced life span.[…][]

  • Licorice Ingestion

    The myoglobinemia led to a glomerulopathy and tubulopathy. There was, however, no clinical evidence of acute renal failure (ARF).[]

  • Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome

    […] of NMS: Leukocytosis, thrombocytosis, partially explained by dehydration Increased lactate dehydrogenase and creatine kinase, with high values indicating rhabdomyolysis Myoglobinemia[] […] laboratory parameter is high CPK ( 1000 IU/L ). (6) Leukocytosis is a consistent finding, and there are mild elevations in LDH and transaminases, electrolyte imbalance and myoglobinemia[] […] the following: Increased LDH Increased creatine kinase (50-100% of cases) Increased AST and ALT Increased alkaline phosphatase Hyperuricemia Hyperphosphatemia Hyperkalemia Myoglobinemia[]
