ABSTRACT
A case study of a 33-year-old woman who suffered from haemolytic-uraemic syndrome (HUS) and given acute peritoneal dialysis which help in recovering renal functions. Later she was diagnosed with focal segmental hyalinosis by renal biopsy and treated with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors which help in reducing proteinuria and maintain glomerular filtration rate. The data from the case study shows that HUS in children may cause renal failure, high blood pressure (HBP) and proteinuria.
