Tau protein levels in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum are elevated in patients with various central nervous system diseases. We investigated whether serum tau protein levels are useful for predicting and assessing disease activity of acute encephalopathy (AE) in enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O111-induced hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS; EHEC(More)
OBJECTIVE To elucidate the clinical and radiologic features and analyze factors associated with neurologic outcomes of encephalopathy secondary to Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) O111. METHODS We reviewed medical records and neuroimaging in 22 patients with neurologic symptoms among 86 with STEC O111 infection. RESULTS Twenty-one (6 males(More)
