Abstract

We report a case of Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in a 16 year old child. The clue to diagnosis was made by peripheral blood same which showed hemophagocytosis. The disease is under reported in a developing country like India as it mandates certain diagnostic criteria which require advanced testing facilities as well as thorough microscopic examination of blood smear and bone marrow. The case presented with penile Panniculitis which is extremely uncommon presentation for this disorder.

Keywords: Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis; Cytophagic Histiocytic Panniculitis
