Isolation of Toxigenic Hafnia alvei from a Probable Case of Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome.

An 11-year-old girl presented to a central California children's hospital with a 3-day history of erythematous lesions on her forehead, neck, and trunk, abdominal pain, persistent emesis, and decreased urinary output. One day prior to admission she had a mild bout of diarrhea with a small amount of blood in her stool. Upon admission her condition rapidly worsened with acute renal failure, anemia, and thrombocytopenia. One of the possible causes of this condition included hemolytic uremic syndrome. Stool cultures of this patient tested at the children's hospital and at a state reference laboratory were repeatedly negative for Escherichia coli O157:H7. However, the state reference laboratory detected a toxigenic strain of Hafnia alvei active on Vero cells from two consecutive stool cultures during the acute phase of her illness.[1]
