1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends on type

Children with enterotoxic hus die 5% or less.
With atypical hus the death rate is higher with chronic recurrent episodes.

In brief: HUS mortality

It is estimated that ~5% die from hemolytic-uremic syndrome.
Adults usually fare worse than children (and the underlying etiology of the disease is different).
