AbstractHemophagocytic 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.
