Hemolytic-Uremic syndrome is a relatively new disease found in infants rather than in older children. The incidence of this disease has increased in recent years. Hemolytic-Uremic syndrome is a fatal illness characterized clinically by acute renal failure, thromboc- ytopenia and hemolytic anemia associated with distorted erythrocytes (Burr cells). A case of Hemolytic-Uremic syndrome in a 10 months old male patient diagnosed in 1970, the first in Korea, has been presented. The patient died on the 10th hospital day and the autopsy findings con- firmed the diagnosis of Hemolytic-Uremic syndrome. A literature review was made on this subject.
