Among ese we emphasize e rombotic rombocytopenic purpura and Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, and e latter can occur by e action of toxins, systemic diseases, overactivation of e alternative complement system pa way, which can occur due to changes in regulatory proteins.

Herein we report e outcome of a Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) Controversies Conference where key issues in e management of ese 2 diseases were considered by a global panel of experts. Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is a condition caused by e abnormal destruction of red blood cells. e damaged red blood cells clog e filtering system in e kidneys which can cause severe acute kidney failure. HUS usually develops after bloody diarrhea caused by certain bacteria. Children can also develop HUS related to certain pneumonia. Variable disease manifestations and triggers make it difficult to quickly establish e diagnosis on e basis of clinical findings and laboratory results, but a delay in treatment adversely affects kidney and patient survival. e two principal forms of TMA are TTP and hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).
