Hemolytic uremic syndrome in a 65-Year-old male linked to a very unusual type of stx2e- and eae-harboring O51:H49 shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli


Fasel, Dominique; Mellmann, Alexander; Cernela, Nicole; Hächler, Herbert; Fruth, Angelika; Khanna, Nina; Egli, Adrian; Beckmann, Christiane; Hirsch, Hans H; Goldenberger, Daniel; Stephan, Roger (2014). Hemolytic uremic syndrome in a 65-Year-old male linked to a very unusual type of stx2e- and eae-harboring O51:H49 shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 52(4):1301-1303.

Abstract

We report on a 65-year-old male patient with a Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O51:H49 gastrointestinal infection and sepsis associated with hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) with a fatal outcome. The strains isolated harbored stx2e and eae, a very unusual and new virulence profile for an HUS-associated enterohemorrhagic E. coli.
