Özet

A 16-year-old boy presented with acute kidney injury (AKI) which was attributed to chronic heavy cola consumption. Habitual heavy cola ingestion might lead to hypokalemic rhabdomyolysis by its glycyrrhizin content. AKI has been described rarely in association with this clinical picture. It is important for physicians to keep heavy cola and other soft drink consumption in mind as a cause for hypokalemic rhabdomyolysis and AKI.
