Abstract

Haemolytic uraemic syndrome is a rare condition with an overall incidence ofone to two cases in a population of 100 000 and approximately 10% of thesecases are classified as atypical.1Atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome (aHUS)is a thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) characterized by microangiopathichaemolytic anaemia (MAHA), thrombocytopenia and acute kidney injury.aHUS can be genetic, acquired or idiopathic (negative genetic screening andno environmental triggers). We describe a case of aHUS triggered by monoclo-nal gammopathy of renal significance (MGRS) successfully treated with plas-mapheresis and a bortezomib-based chemotherapy regimen, resulting inmarked improvement in renal function and other markers of haemolysis. Thispatient has been in remission for more than 2 years currently.
