As hypertension and neurological alterations, and causes death between 3 and 5% of cases.

 HUS can lead to death and is the first cause of acute renal failure in pediatric patients  and adults may also develop hemolytic uremic syndrome due to infection with that or other bacteria. Pregnant women and patients with impaired immune system, such as transplanted, immuno-suppressed or people with HIV or cancer are at risk, explains the agency Ansa.
