Novel presentation of Plasmodium vivax malaria with acute kidney injury and hemolytic uremic syndrome
Conclusion Clinical association of vivax malaria with TMA leading to HUS is novel and suggests parasite related severe endothelial injury. Future studies are needed to demonstrate interaction of parasite with endothelium and factors related to it.

In epidemiology speak, this means the causal inference authors are trying to draw between for-profit status and good transplant outcomes is subject to time-varying confounding. As an example, if one is seeking an association between testosterone levels and risk of a heart attack, using the last testosterone level available would be a poor way of doing this study because testosterone levels are known to vary over time. The same applies to dialysis facilities. Patie...
