Symptoms of an E. coli Infection
Symptoms of an E. coli infection, which usually develop within one to three days of exposure, include abdominal cramps and diarrhea that can be bloody. Most of the time, E. coli symptoms last about a week and the illness ends. But between 5 percent and 10 percent of E. coli patients develop a life-threatening complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure associated with E. coli infections. Treatment for HUS includes transfusions, dialysis, plasma exchange, and kidney transplant.
HUS most often affects children. Symptoms of HUS usually start to appear about one week after initial E. coli symptoms. They include pale skin, skin that bruises easily, decreased urine output, lethargy, and bloody diarrhea. Anyone with these symptoms should seek immediate medical care as HUS can be fatal.
