Haemolytic uraemic syndrome
Haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) is a syndrome associated with microvascular diseases of the kidney and is characterized by haemolytic uraemia, thrombocytopenia and acute renal failure. Most cases of HUS are caused by bacterial or viral infection, although more-severe cases (atypical HUS) can result from genetic defects in complement activation.
