|What a wonderful website and your explanation of TTP-HUS was so easy to understand. I will certainly be giving it to our pediatricians. Our son was 15 months old(now 5) when he was in ICU with TTP. Since then we have moved and doctor after doctor is not comfortable giving our son his immunizations. He had no renal involvement. He had Plasma Pheresis for five days, a platelet transfusion and two blood transfusions. Do you have any documentation of problems after discharge that might be linked to having TTP? My son has severe constipation since the hospital stay, as well as, white spots(like vitiligo) and patches on skin. He is still easily tired and looks pale at different moments. We understand that a relapse is unlikely but, as you know from your studies, you are always on the look out. We were told IF it would happen, it would happen within 8 years but it would be highly unlikely to have another episode. He was at Miami Children's Hospital.

|I am 25 and was diagnosed with TTP in Dec 04, relapsed in Aug 05'. I had 4 rounds of weekly rituximab. I was okay for 4 years then relapsed again May 09' two days after the birth of my daughter. I also had Preeaclampsia and HELLP. I then relapsed again in Nov 09. Then I had 4 weekly treatments of the rituximab. It is a difficult disease to keep relapsing, but we muct keep our heads up! I also wanted to say that in my experience I feel the rituximab helps to keep me in remission.
