|Title:||Severe rhabdomyolysis due to adipsic hypernatremia after craniopharyngioma surgery|
|Abstract:||The association of diabetes insipidus and adipsia after craniopharyngioma surgery has high morbidity. Hypernatremia can be caused by adipsia and be aggravated by diabetes insipidus. Rhabdomyolysis rarely occurs. Case report: This is the first report of a diabetic patient with craniopharyngioma who developed diabetes insipidus and adipsia after surgery, evolving with severe hypernatremia that caused considerable rhabdomyolysis. Conclusion: The importance of the evaluation of muscle integrity when under hypernatremic states is pointed out. Although adipsia may have a simple solution through volunteer water ingestion, serious consequences such as repeated severe hypernatremia episodes and intense rhabdomyolysis with high morbidity could occur, if adipsia is not diagnosed.|
