Abstract:   (1036 Views)
Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare but potentially fatal syndrome of immune hyperactivation. The HLH-2004 criteria is a standard guide for the diagnosis of HLH. We report the case of a 48-year-old female who presented with a sore throat, fever, weakness, and lethargy. Initial laboratory tests revealed pancytopenia. A bone marrow aspirate was performed, which revealed hemophagocytosis. The patient fulfilled the HLH-2004 criteria. The present study tries to raise awareness about the proper diagnosis of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and to notify clinicians about one of the rarest complications of this disease (HLH).
