Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) is characterized by the clinical triad of microangiopathic non-immune hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal failure. There are infections, genetic causes, malignancies, autoimmune diseases, drugs, and many unexplained causes in the etiology of HUS. The most common cause of HUS in children is Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC). In the literature, few influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 virus-related HUS cases are reported. In this case report, a case with hemolytic uremic syndrome associated with influenza A (H1N1) pdm09 virus infection is presented.
- Influenza A (H1N1) pdm09
- Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome
- Nephrotic Syndrome
