Abstract

Many pathogenetic factors may enhance coagulation process and induce thrombosis. The Authors report a case of hemolytic-uremic syndrome, with marked evidence of macroscopic kidney thrombotic involvement, in which an important dyslipidemia (hypertriglyceridemia and hypercholesterolemia) was detected during the phase of clinical improvement. These findings, and the contemporary marked reduction of fibrinolytic activity, seem to be relevant pathogenetic factors in this case. The treatment with polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega 3 may have been helpful in modifying these serum abnormalities and maybe could have brought to the clinical improvement.
