Diarrhea-Associated Hemolytic-Uremic Syndrome in a Child With Nail-Patella Syndrome
AbstractABSTRACT: A 5-year-old girl with nail-patella syndrome had diarrhea-associated hemolyticuremic syndrome. Nail-patella syndrome is associated with a glomerulopathy characterized by the presence of fibrillar collagen within the glomerular basement membrane. Hemolyticuremic syndrome has also been reported in patients with collagen type III glomerulopathy, a disorder also characterized by the presence of fibrillar collagen within the basement membrane. Patients with nail-patella syndrome or with collagen type III glomerulopathy may be predisposed to hemolytic-uremic syndrome.
