Abstract/OtherAbstract:
HUS is one of the most common causes of acute renal failure in childhood. D+ HUS is the most common form and usually follows an episode of hemorrhagic colitis due to VTEC or S. dysenteriae type 1. The SLT elaborated by these organisms is responsible for the endothelial damage that is the initial insult in the pathogenesis of the acute renal failure. Excellent supportive care is necessary to reduce the mortality and morbidity due to HUS.
