Abstract

Post transplant hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) secondary to immunosuppressive regimen is becoming more common with increasing numbers of organ transplantation. We describe a case of refractory HUS secondary to immunosuppression post multivisceral transplantation, successfully managed with plasmapheresis and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG).
