PMID:  19033247     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The spectrum of extra-renal involvement secondary to diarrhoeal (D+) haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) includes neurological, gastrointestinal, hepatic, pancreatic and cardiac complications. Among the cardiac complications, myocardial injury has been more commonly reported with HUS. Literature is scarce on HUS-associated pericardial involvement. We report a HUS-induced significant pericardial effusion that resulted in a cardiac tamponade. We also discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic implications of this complication.
