Postpartum Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (PHUS) is a rare disease characterized by spontaneous renal failure occurring immediately after delivery to 10 weeks postpartum. The clinical manifestation associated with PHUS includes acute microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, low platelet levels, and acute renal failure.
