Rhabdomyolysis constitutes a severe medical emergency that requires immediate recognition and prompt treatment to prevent serious consequences. There are a variety of causes, but rhabdomyolysis after head and neck surgery is very rare.

Physicians require special attention for the high-risk patients to avoid severe complications.
