Toxic shock syndrome is frequently complicated by renal dysfunction. The mechanism of this functional disturbance is unclear. The present report concerns a 33-year-old woman with reversible renal failure in the course of toxic shock syndrome owing to rhabdomyolysis. It is suspected that the renal consequences of muscle injury play a pathophysiological role in the acute renal failure of toxic shock syndrome.
