Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome : when the environment and mutations affect organ systems. A case report with review of literature
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) is a rare thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) with a genetic predisposition. Like other TMAs, it presents clinically with thrombocytopenia and microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, which is accompanied by disruption of at least one organ system. We present a case of a 42-year-old female who presented with abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. She had hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia and acute kidney injury suggestive of TMA.
