Abstract

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), is rare, is caused by a dysfunction of cellular immunity by an alteration of NK cells (primary) or by an excessive proliferation of activated (secondary) macrophages. It is characterized by fever, hepatosplenomegaly, cytopenia, hemophagocytosis, hypertriglyceridemia and / or hypofibrinogenemia. In conclusion, in the presence of fever, hepatosplenomegaly and cytopenia, the diagnosis of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) should be considered.

Key words: Fever; Hepatosplenomegaly; Cytopenia. (source: MeSH NLM)
