We report here the first case of rhabdomyolysis at the time of primary human herpesvirus 6 infection. The patient was a previously healthy 1-year-old girl who developed rhabdomyolysis 4 days after the onset of the primary human herpesvirus 6 infection. No other etiologic agent that might cause rhabdomyolysis was identified.
