  1. Results are presented as number of cases, n (%) and median (interquartile range). If data on the feature was not available in all medical records, the number of cases where available is presented with (N = number of cases where available). Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was estimated retrospectively using the height-independent Pottel eGFR equation [29]. HUS hemolytic uremic syndrome
