Abstract Current knowledge of the circulating enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) strains as agents of severe infections has a significant impact on the improvement of diagnostic procedures and control strategies. This report describes a case of hemolytic uremic syndrome related to an uncommon EHEC 0165:HNM serotype. As far as we know, this serotype has not been previously associated with human infections, nor has it been isolated from the animal reservoir in São Paulo, Brazil. (C) 2007 Elsevier Inc.
