Child with HUS home from hospital

Sidney Jacobi, a 6-year-old child who is part of the E. coli outbreak among Galena Elementary School students, is home from the hospital.

Sidney sustained the most serious injures of any child hospitalized during the outbreak, suffering hemolytic uremic syndrome, which caused kidney failure. Although Sidney is still recovering, high blood pressure is still a concern.

Follow-up treatment for victims of E. coli and hemolytic uremic syndrome is very important, and all persons who have experienced HUS should be formally evaluated by a nephrologist at a year following their acute illness.
