Haemolytic uraemic syndrome caused by Shiga toxin-producing E. coli

In this case report laboratory results of a two-year-old patient presented at the hospital with watery stool (later bloody stool with fever appearing) are shown. The CBC measured on XR-Series showed leucocytosis, anaemia, thrombocytopenia and schistocytes. Further test results revealed acute kidney injury, elevated lactate dehydrogenase (LD), an increase in C-reactive protein (CRP) and antibodies to Escherichia coli O157 lipopolysaccharide were found as well. This led to the suspicion of haemolytic uraemic syndrome due to Shiga toxin-producing E. coli.
