  A 3 year old boy develops abdominal pain, and the next day fever, pain on urinating and brown-red urine, and is taken to the ER. He had no previous complaints/illnesses but his mom tells the doc that he and his brother had been playing and hiding in old cupboards in the attic. The boy probably has:
1. Hemolytic uremic syndrome
2. Henoch Schonlein purpura
2. Naphthalene poisoning
3. Iron pills poisoning
4. rat bite

  u guys are all right. th kid could have inhaled/ingested moth balls, but doesn't need to have G6PD. G6PDers are more 'prone' to hemolysis, but this can happen in normal ppl too.
