Abstract

The long-term clinical outcome for children affected by hemolytic uremic syndrome associated with verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli (VTEC–HUS) is well documented, but the parental experience is not. The authors investigated the effects of the critical-care hospitalization for this condition on well-being of patients’ families.
