Diclofenac, a widely used nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, has been reported to cause fatal drug-induced rhabdomyolysis very rarely . We report a case of a 13-month-old girl who developed fatal rhabdomyolysis after administration of intramuscular diclofenac for relief of pain caused by a scalding burn injury. Rhabdomyolysis due to diclofenac has not been reported in children. Here, we present the first case report to demonstrate rhabdomylysis secondary to diclofenac administration.
