Abstract

Introduction. Atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS) is associated with mutations or antibodies that affect the regulation of the alternative complement pathway. Several studies were published recently, describing these mutations. We present the initial clinical findings, treatments, and long-term follow-up results of 19 patients hospitalized with the diagnosis of aHUS.
