The case of a 53 year-old, ASA physical status III man who underwent laparoscopy-assisted cystoprostatectomy, then subsequently developed three-limb compartment syndrome and rhabdomyolysis, is presented. He recovered baseline renal function and the use of his limbs. Well-limb compartment syndrome (WLCS) has a multifactorial etiology and is prevented and managed by avoidance of known risks.
