    no 1. I think its not TTP, take a look the creatinie... this is a case of HUS. with Fever... :D
  15. Piccadelies

    Piccadelies Guest

    Clinically, HUS can be very hard to distinguish from thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). The laboratory features are almost identical, and not every case of HUS is preceded by diarrhea. The only distinguishing feature is that in TTP, neurological symptoms occur more often, but this is not always the case.
