The authors experienced an extremely rare case of secondary sclerosing cholangitis and portal hypertension developed as late complications of hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) owing to Escherichia coli O157:H7 in a 2-year-old boy. HUS after E coli O157 infection is the most frequent cause of acute renal failure in childhood and occasionally is accompanied by extrarenal complications such as encephalopathy, cardiomyopathy, ischemic colitis, and pancreatitis. Rarely, late colonic stenosis may develop secondary to the ischemic damage. Sclerosing cholangitis and subsequent cirrhosis with portal hypertension are very uncommon as late complications of HUS. To our knowledge, such a case has not been previously reported in the literature. J Pediatr Surg 36:1838-1840.
