In brief: Kidney disease
Caused by break down of red blood cells (hemolysis) that is caused by minute clots ( microthrombi )in capillaries in kidneys and other organs including brain.
The resultant blockage of kidney and brain circulations cause kidney failure and seizure respectively. Not all cases have obviously diagnosable reason but an infection with certain kind of e.Coli bacteria can cause it and that can be fatal.

In brief: Toxic Kidney Injury
Hus is a disorder that usually occurs when an infection in the GI tract (such as e.
Coli o157:h7) produces toxic substances that damage blood vessel lining, cause hemolytic anemia and lead to kidney failure. It is a serious infectious complication that can actually be made worse with antibiotics.
