HUS is an illness in which the red blood cells are destroyed and the kidneys fail. HUS is a condition that can follow diarrhea caused by certain kinds of bacteria, including E. coli O157:H7 (and other E. coli strains) or Shigella dysenteriae. It can be serious, however, only a small percent of people with E. coli or Shigella dysenteriae develop HUS. Not all cases of HUS are caused by infection with these bacteria.
