We report two cases of Duchenne muscular dystrophy that presented with laboratory evidence of acute transient myocardial cell damage. The mechanism for development of cardiomyopathy associated with Duchenne muscular dystrophy is not well understood, and this report raises the possibility that the progressive deterioration of cardiac function is punctuated by acute episodes of cell damage.
