Abstract

The authors report a rare case of diarrhea caused by Moraxella osloensis in a pediatric child with Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome/Acute Renal Failure (HUS/ARF). A 6-y-old boy was referred to the Pediatric Unit with a 3 d history of bloody diarrhea with mucus and fever and decreased urine output for 6 d. Microbiological investigations were done as per CLSI guidelines. His diarrhea, and the subsequent renal failure resolved with appropriate treatment. To the best of authors' knowledge and pubmed search, this is the first case of M. osloensis causing diarrhea in a HUS/ARF pediatric patient reported from India-Manipal.
