Traditionally, TMAs have been classified as either thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) or haemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) based on the clinical presentation, with neurological involvement predominating in the former and acute kidney injury in the latter Hemolytic uremic syndrome: differential diagnosis with the onset of inflammatory bowel diseases The current literature shows that gastrointestinal complications of HUS are quite exclusive of STEC-associated HUS, whereas aHUS have usually mild or absent intestinal involvement . In all patients with suspected HUS, investigations that help establish the diagnosis include full blood count (FBC), peripheral smear, creatinine, prothrombin time (PT), partial thromboplastin time (PTT), and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) AskMayoExpert.

Hemolytic uremic syndrome, or HUS, is a kidney condition that happens when red blood cells are destroyed and block the kidneys' filtering system. Red blood cells contain hemoglobin—an iron-rich protein that gives blood its red color and carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is characterized by MAHA and acute kidney injury, and commonly thrombocytopenia and neurologic dysfunction. HUS is a separate entity from TTP based on ADAMTS13. The hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) has been recognized for more than 45 years and consists of the combination of hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, and acute renal failure. HUS occurs predominantly in children younger than 4 years of age. It is the most frequent cause of acute renal failure in children. The most common form of the syndrome Hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) is a clinical syndrome characterized by progressive renal failure that is associated with microangiopathic (nonimmune, Coombs-negative) hemolytic anemia and.. Thrombotic microangiopathies (TMA) are a class of disorders characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, non-immune thrombocytopenia, and organ dysfunction. One type of TMA is atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) a disorder caused by hyper-activation of the alternative complement pathway
Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a a kidney condition that happens when red blood cells are destroyed and block the kidneys' filtering system. The damaged red blood cells clog the filtering system in the kidneys, which can lead to life-threatening kidney failure Hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) is a group of blood disorders characterized by low red blood cells, acute kidney failure, and low platelets. Initial symptoms typically include bloody diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and weakness. Kidney problems and low platelets then occur as the diarrhea progresses Diagnosing Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome Some very basic tests can be ordered to determine whether blood cells have been damaged or kidney function compromised: CB The diagnosis of hemolytic uremic syndrome requires a high index of suspicion based on symptoms, travel history, and dietary history. A complete blood count (CBC), comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP), and a urinalysis may aid in the diagnosis. The CBC shows both anemia and thrombocytopenia. Hemoglobin is often less than 10 g/dl
Hemolytic uremic syndrome is a condition characterized by destruction of red blood cells, low platelet count, and kidney failure..
