Rhabdomyolysis is defined as the dissolution of striped muscle characterized by the leakage of intracellular muscle components into the circulation, which can ultimately lead to renal failure with a possible fatal outcome. Trabectedin is a potential cause of rhabdomyolysis. Herein, we describe a case of rhabdomyolysis in a female patient with recurrent metastatic leiomyosarcoma of the uterus and who had full recovery, and we review the already published cases in order to identify a common pattern of emergence.
