Background: Drugs are very important in the etiology of nontraumatic rhabdomyolysis. Case descriptions: A 16-year-old male patient with Wilson's disease was admitted for myoclonic contractions. Oral trientine was started for neurological problems and tremor on the hands due to D-penicillamine 1 month ago. Patient was oligoanuric, and his creatine kinase level was 15197 U/L. Rhabdomyolysis was associated with trientine, and trientine treatment was stopped. Hemodiafiltration was performed. The patient began to urinate on the 24th day. Conclusion: This is the first pediatric patient with rhabdomyolysis induced by trientine. Drugs used should be questioned carefully in patients with rhabdomyolysis.
