Creatine phosphokinase isoenzymes, comment

July 22, 2011

Thank you for reminding us about the CPK isoenzymes. We had an interesting case. A driver was in a motor vehicle accident. He had extremely high levels of his creatine phosphokinase isoenzymes. That is his CPK-1, CPK-2, and CPK-3 were all extremely high. The question was at that time, was the high level due to alcohol or a heart attack. It turned out that the high levels were due to a heart attack and stroke right before the accident. Also, it was due to muscle trauma during the accident.
