Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare and potentially fatal syndrome seen primarily in children. It is characterized by pathologic systemic hyper inflammation which in adults is easily overlooked due to non-specific clinical features. Most of the data available are on paedriatic population, making the diagnosis of HLH in adults challenging for the clinician.

The objectives of this open-perspective clinical study were to test the effect of a new type of anaesthesia using sevofluran during surgical treatment of patients with burns, and to compare it with that of ketamin, at present the most frequently used anaesthetic. The study, conceived as a pilot study, was performed on 10 paediatric and 8 adult patients with 2nd degree burns covering between 7% and 35% of body surface. Owing to highly significant differences in parameters in favour of sevofluran, it was recommended by our ethical committee not to increase the number of patients...
