Abstract

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis - which is associated with a variety of infections, malignant neoplasms, autoimmune diseases, and immunodeficiencies - is an uncommon syndrome with a rapidly fatal outcome. We describe the first case of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome due to Hantaan virus presenting with reactive hemophagocytosis.
