Before writing this chapter I though I understood rhabdomyolysis fairly well. I had treated many cases, read about it in a few books, and heard a lecture or two on it. However, writing this chapter has forced me to realize that I didn't really understand rhabdo well at all. This disease is generally poorly understood, with almost no high-quality evidence available. Most of the conventional teaching on rhabdomyolysis is based on assumptions and dogma. This chapter attempts to make sense of the topic, but many questions remain.
