A history of poor growth in early childhood associated with persistent diarrhea and iron deficiency anemia led to a diagnosis of celiac disease in a 9-yr-old boy hospitalized for acute rhabdomyolysis. Elevated serum creatine kinase levels had been documented over the previous years, and Becker's muscular dystrophy was diagnosed by immunostaining of dystrophin and DNA analysis.
