L’esame automatizzato delle urine come approccio “bottom-up” per la diagnosi di rabdomiolisi
Automated urinalysis as a bottom-up approach to rhabdomyolysis diagnosis
G. Stel  |  F. De Biasi  |  A. Dalmazzo  |  S. Sala  | 
<p>Rhabdomyolysis is a clinicopathological&nbsp;situation of heterogeneous origin, characterized by skeletal muscle damage followed by the release into&nbsp;the circulation of various myocyte components, including myoglobin. This small protein, which plays a pivotal role in&nbsp;the myocyte function, is easily filtered through the glomerulus in the urine, representing a potential factor of tubular&nbsp;toxicity. In this report, we describe three cases in which standard urine samples were analyzed with the integrated&nbsp;system iRICELL 3000 (Beckman Coulter): the observed discrepancy between a strong strip positivity for hemoglobin&nbsp;and an absent hematuria induced to perform an immunoassay measurement of myoglobin, leading to a well grounded&nbsp;suspect of rhabdomyolysis. The management of patients was thus optimized, suggesting to clinicians the elements&nbsp;for a rapid diagnosis.</p>
