A 33-year-old woman with a history of chronic transplant dysfunction because of repeated bouts of haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) was considered for a second transplant. Extensive genetic investigation of the complement system was executed to rule out known mutations prone to development of HUS. This case illustrates the importance of genetic screening in patients with recurrent HUS. © Van Zuiden Communications B.V. All rights reserved.
