Neonatal hemolytic uremic syndrome after mother-to-child transmission of a low virulent stx2b harbouring Shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli


Stritt, A; Kottanattu, L; Bucher, B; Tschumi, S; Steinmann, M; von Steiger, N; Stephan, Roger; Hächler, H; Simonetti, G D (2013). Neonatal hemolytic uremic syndrome after mother-to-child transmission of a low virulent stx2b harbouring Shiga-toxin producing Escherichia coli. Clinical Infectious Diseases, 56(1):114-116.

Abstract

This case describes evidence for a Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O146:H28 infection leading to hemolytic uremic syndrome in a neonate. STEC O146:H28 was linked hitherto with asymptomatic carriage in humans. Based on strain characteristics and genotyping data, the mother is a healthy carrier who transmitted the STEC during delivery. STEC strains belonging to the low-pathogenic STEC group must also be considered in the workup of neonatal hemolytic uremic syndrome.
