Abstract

There have been major advances in the understanding of pathogenesis and management of hemolytic uremic syndrome in the last decade. Since the consensus paper published in 2009 by the European Pediatric Study Group in 2009, there have been four prospective trials and multiple case reports on effective terminal blockade with Eculizumab, an international consensus on the diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for management has been published in 2015.
