Pink urine syndrome: a rare clinical presentation

Kostas Chondros.

Abstract
Urine pigmentation other than yellowish is always compelling. The presence of several substances in conjunction with the acidification of the urine usually alter the normal color. Pink pigmentation is rather uncommon and it has been related to propofol administration or the presence of uric crystals. In our case, the patient suffered from acute compartment syndrome after an accident and developed pink urine for at least 24 hours of unknown etiology after his orthopedic surgery.

Key words: Pink urine, urine pigmentation
