Abstract

A retrospective study on the use of plasma exchange in children with hemolytic-uremic syndrome was conducted to compare the renal outcome in treated and nontreated patients. Only children over 5 years of age were selected because they seem to be at major risk of bad renal prognosis. The evolution of renal function in the two populations is not significantly different, but chronic renal failure (clearance 2) and end- stage renal failure were present only in untreated patients.
