University of Houston Rhabdomyolysis: What is Rhabdomyolysis?
The word can be divided into three parts:
Rhabdo mean "rod" or "wand" and refers to the shape of the muscle fiber.
Myo means muscle.
Lysis means destruction.
Thus the word means the destruction of muscle fibers which can lead to myalgias (muscle pain), muscle weakness, and darkened urine, then kidney failure and possibly death. It is frequently called "Rhabdo" for short.
