Haemolytic-uraemic syndrome outbreak caused by Escherichia coli O111:H-: clinical outcomes

, : Haemolytic-uraemic syndrome outbreak caused by Escherichia coli O111:H-: clinical outcomes. Medical Journal of Australia 168(11): 552-555

In South Australia in 1995, we treated 20 children with haemolytic-uraemic syndrome associated with Escherichia coli O111:H-. The source of the outbreak was contaminated locally produced semi-dry fermented sausage (mettwurst). One child died of multiple haemorrhagic cerebral infarcts. Eighteen children required renal dialysis (for a median of 14 days); 12 months after discharge five still had significant impairment of renal function. Other major complications included colonic necrosis (3), cerebral haemorrhage/infarction (3), convulsions (4), and glucose intolerance (2). Although E. coli O111:H- has been associated with sporadic cases of haemolytic-uraemic syndrome, this was the first large outbreak reported in Australia.
