Abstract

Typical form of Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome is caused most commonly enterohemorrhagic E. coli strain O157:H71. Here we report a unique case of HUS secondary to enteropathogenic E. coli infection, with a discussion on the diagnosis of HUS and how it is distinguished from other thrombotic microangiopathies (TMAs).
