Hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) is a rare clinicopathological disorder characterized by systemic proliferation of phagocytizing histiocytes associated with fever, cytopenias, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, and disseminated intravascular coagulopathy. We present the association of hemophagocytic syndrome associated with inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone (SIADH) in two cases of hematological malignancies; anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) and acute myeloblastic leukemia (AML M4) In the patient with lymphoma, the diagnosis of lymphoma, HPS and SIADH were concurrent...

He inadvertently received 15 mg of vincristine instead of 1.5 mg. Following this overdosage he developed pancytopaenia, mild neurotoxicity and subsequently a grand mal seizure associated with the delayed onset of hyponatremia...
