A 64-year-old patient with major depression who developed self-induced water intoxication associated with rhabdomyolysis is presented. The possible link between acute hyponatremia and muscle injury is discussed and previous reported cases with this association are reviewed. The importance of recognizing this complication in patients with water intoxication is stressed.
