Pediatr Nephrol. 1997 Oct;11(5):631-2. doi: 10.1007/s004670050353.

Abstract

In a retrospective review of 241 cases with hemolytic-uremic syndrome, there was evidence of pancreatic involvement in 2 patients, abnormal ultrasounds in 4 patients, and pancreatic injury in 3 of 8 patients undergoing autopsy. Pancreas ultrasound examination, available in 134 cases, was very valuable in identifying those with pancreatic injury.
