We have encountered a total of 22 patients with exercise-induced acute renal failure , and our clinical findings are summarized in Table 3. In most patients their creatine phosphokinase (CPK) and serum myoglobin levels were normal or slightly increased. In no patient were these levels higher than 10–20 times the reference values, which is different from patients with myoglobinuric acute renal failure. The type of exercise involved was anaerobic exercise requiring instant power over a short duration, such as short-distance running (sprinting), a swimming race, or weightlifting. In particular, 50% of the patients developed acute renal failure after running at full speed (sprinting) in an athletics meeting, and this disorder was considered to be postathletics meeting or post-anaerobic exercise acute renal failure. In 4 of the 22 patients, renal hypouricemia was observed.
