Abstract

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a rare condition, characterized by excessive cytokine release and inflammatory response. HLH can be primary or secondary to infections, neoplasm or autoimmune conditions. Management includes immunosuppressive agents. Diagnosis of HLH is difficult in the setting of sepsis. We report a case of Klebsiella pneumonia complicated by HLH.
