Acute rhabdomyolysis after uncomplicated, primary varicella-zoster infection is a rare condition that is sparsely reported in the literature. We report a case of acute rhabdomyolysis due to varicella-zoster infection and review the literature regarding the etiology, diagnosis, and management of this potentially life-threatening condition. Rapid recognition, along with appropriate treatment, should result in an excellent recovery without adverse sequelae.
