Brian, a previously fit and healthy 13 year old, became extremely unwell during a holiday in Croatia and was treated at The Portland Hospital in July 2015.
Brian initially presented dehydrated, lethargic, anuric, with profuse vomiting and diarrhoea. He was diagnosed with an AKI, hyperkalaemia, and acidosis and was consequently commenced on CRRT prior to his transfer to the UK.
On his arrival at The Portland Hospital, Brian presented with a dialysis dependent AKI, acute hepatitis, anaemia, and thrombocytopenia as a consequence of suspected haemolytic uremic syndrome secondary to E.coli.
He continued his dialysis therapy and by the end of the second week his kidney function demonstrated early signs of recovery. Once sufficiently stable and with his dialysis prescription optimised he was repatriated to the USA where he continued treatment on an outpatient basis at home.
Brian’s kidneys made a full recovery.
