Lipid storage myopathy, primarily characterized by excessive and pathological lipid accumulation in muscle fibers, is a group of genetic disorders. Although lipid metabolism disorders can lead to various clinical manifestations, patients often present with progressive muscle pain, muscle weakness, and fatigue. A 32-year-old female patient with no known chronic systemic disease except for a cervical-lumbar disc herniation presented to our emergency department with complaints of widespread muscle pain, weakness, and newly onset hematuria over the past few days. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the patient who was hospitalized in the internal medicine clinic with a diagnosis of non-traumatic exercise-induced rhabdomyolysis accompanied by hematuria and acute renal failure.
