In this study, 38 Acinetobacter baumannii isolates successively isolated from blood, skin swabs and tracheal aspirates from a single patient who died from haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis were investigated. The isolates were collected between March 2012 and August 2012. A. baumannii genotypes were determined by multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). In vitro antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed and colistin heteroresistance and persistence were evaluated...

Haemophagocytic syndrome, or haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), is a hyperinflammatory disorder characterised by uncontrolled activation of the immune system. It can result from mutations in multiple genes involved in cytotoxicity or occur secondary to a range of infections, malignancies or autoimmune rheumatic diseases. In the latter case, it is also known as macrophage activation syndrome (MAS). Characteristic features are persistent fever, hepatosplenomegaly, petechial/purpuric rash, progressive cytopenias, coagulopathy, transaminitis, raised C reactive protein, falling erythrocyte sedimentation rate, hypertriglyceridaemia, hypofibrinogenaemia and extreme hyperferritinaemia often associated with multi-organ impairment...

Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS) is a rare form of Haemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) associated with rheumatologic conditions. It is characterised by haemophagocytosis and cytokine overproduction, resulting from the activation and uncontrolled proliferation of T lymphocytes and macrophages. The patient being reported is an elderly female with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), who presented with fever and was found to have MAS. She later developed Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) and died. Such a scenario has rarely been reported...

Haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a rare inflammatory condition. It can present in adult general medical patients and is a challenging diagnostic conundrum. This article provides an overview of the pathophysiology and clinical presentation of the syndrome for the general physician who will be rarely confronted with this problem but will have to act promptly when the situation arises. Treatment is also briefly discussed, although this usually occurs in a specialist setting after the diagnosis has been established...

Perforin, a pore-forming toxin released from secretory granules of NK cells and CTLs, is essential for their cytotoxic activity against infected or cancerous target cells. Bi-allelic loss-of-function mutations in the perforin gene are invariably associated with a fatal immunoregulatory disorder, familial haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 2 (FHL2), in infants. More recently, it has also been recognized that partial loss of perforin function can cause disease in later life, including delayed onset FHL2 and haematological malignancies...

BACKGROUND: Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease with diverse clinical manifestations caused by a parasitic protozoan of the genus Plasmodium. Complex inter-relationships between Mycoplasma species and Plasmodium parasites have been previously noted in vitro. This is the first report of Plasmodium falciparum and Mycoplasma pneumoniae co-infection in a human host presenting with cerebral malaria manifesting orofacial dyskinesias and haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis. CASE PRESENTATION: A 55-year-old Sri Lankan man with a recent visit to South Africa presented with an acute febrile illness, cough and worsening dyspnoea with alveolar-interstitial infiltrates on chest radiography...

BACKGROUND: Both haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis and acute necrotizing encephalopathy are life-threatening condition. It presents major diagnostic difficulties, since it may have a diversity in clinical picture and with many conditions leading to the same clinical presentation. So it is key important to understand the disorders. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a pediatric case of haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis with specific presentation which predominantly featured as acute necrotizing encephalopathy of childhood...

De novo CD5+ Diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a rare and aggressive subtype of DLBCL. It is a distinct clinicopathologic entity with complex molecular profile and poor prognosis. A 59 year old female presented with pyrexia of unknown origin since 1 month. On examination, there was severe pallor, hepatosplenomegaly and no palpable lymphadenopathy. Complete blood count revealed bicytopenia with normal total leucocyte count. Liver and renal function tests were normal. Ultrasonography abdomen revealed splenic enlargement with two focal lesions attributed to either splenic abscess or infarcts...

BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIM: Haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a life-threatening clinical syndrome with liver involvement varying from mild dysfunction to severe fulminant failure. The aim of this study was to present a case series of four HLH patients presenting with acute liver failure (ALF) in the neonatal period. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All four patients were neonates at the onset of symptoms. They presented to Cairo University Pediatric Hospital with ALF; they underwent prompt investigations including determination of ferritin, fibrinogen, and triglyceride levels as part of our ALF workup...

AIM: To investigate the ability of combined 2-[(18)F]-fluoro-2-deoxy-d-glucose ((18)F-FDG) positron-emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) to determine potential causes of secondary haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (sHLH) and to predict prognosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Forty-three patients (male/female 20/23, median age 48.5 years), who were diagnosed with sHLH and underwent FDG-PET/CT before treatment, were retrospectively reviewed. The clinical characteristics were compared to identify the predictors of high-yield FDG-PET/CT...

This retrospective study included seven paediatric cases aged from 4 to 14 (10.2±3.4) years with pathologically proved haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis from a single institution during 2009 and 2013. Over this time period, 496 patients with brucellosis were diagnosed. None of the patients (3 boys and 4 girls) had a history of any haematologic disorder. All patients had an anamnesis for recently consumed unpasteurised homemade dairy products or had a contact history with sheep and/or cows. The diagnosis of brucellosis was confirmed by standard tube agglutination test in all patients; titres were 1: 1280 in seven patients...

OBJECTIVES: Reactive haemophagocytic syndrome (RHS) is a hyperinflammatory disorder often occurring in the background of several disorders such as infections, malignancies, and rheumatic diseases. Recently, a score known as the HScore was developed for the diagnosis of RHS. In the original study, most of the patients had underlying haematological malignancy or infection and the best cut-off value for the HScore was 169 (sensitivity 93%; specificity 86%). In this study we aimed to analyse the performance of the HScore in rheumatic disease-related RHS...

Neonatal haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare but potentially lethal condition. We recently encountered a preterm infant who developed severe HLH associated with maternal adult-onset Still's disease, which to our knowledge has not been previously reported. The infant presented with fever, generalised lymphadenopathy, transient erythematous skin rash, hepatosplenomegaly, ascites, pancytopenia, marked hyperferritinaemia, and hypofibrinogenaemia, which were features similar to maternal presentation during late pregnancy...

Haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a potentially fatal syndrome that is caused by an abnormal activation of the immune system. It can present as the primary syndrome or occur secondary to a variety of conditions such as malignancy, autoimmune diseases and infections. We present a case of a man who developed HLH secondary to Plasmodium vivax infection. He presented with symptoms of fever, chills and myalgias. Physical examination revealed significant hepatosplenomegaly. The presence of pancytopaenia, elevated ferritin levels and haemophagocytosis on bone marrow biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of HLH (based on HLH-2004 criteria)...
