To the editor: As indicated by Hamilton and associates in their July 1972 article (p. 77) on exercise-induced myoglobinuria, the syndrome of acute exertional rhabdomyolysis is of particular interest to physicians dealing with military recruits. We would like to point out that the physicians of the U.S. Navy Medical Corps (particularly those charged with the medical care of the U.S. Marine Corps) are very concerned with this problem. Several articles by Navy physicians about this syndrome (O'Donnell in the American Journal of Medicine; Gitin and Demos in Military Medicine) have been accepted for publication and will be in print soon.
