114 Possible Causes for Virus Associated Hemophagocytic Syndrome

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    Massive splenic infarction (MSI) is a rare complication of sickle cell disease, as the spleen generally atrophies within the first few years of life. We report a case of MSI in a 12-year-old boy with homozygous sickle cell anemia (Hb SS) whose chronic transfusion therapy resulted in hypersplenism. The occurrence of a[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Rodis, J. F., A. F.[cmr.asm.org] Virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (VAHS) is characterized by histiocytic hyperplasia, marked hemophagocytosis, and cytopenia, in association with a systemic viral illness[cmr.asm.org]

  • Familial Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis

    It is concluded that a viral infection cannot serve as the sole criterion for distinguishing a virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome as an entity separate from familial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) embraces the frequently indistinguishable conditions of familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (FHL) and virus-associated hemophagocytic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fatal virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome associated with coexistent chronic active hepatitis B and acute hepatitis C virus infection.[dovepress.com]

  • Chronic Active Hepatitis B

    Bone marrow biopsy showed hypocellularity, histiocytic hyperplasia, and hemophagocytosis consistent with a virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome (VAHS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To our knowledge this is the first report of a hemophagocytic syndrome in that setting.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The condition was interpreted as VAHS associated with chronic active hepatitis B and acute hepatitis C virus infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hydroa Vacciniforme

    In contrast out of 11 severe patients in this study, 6 had evidence of chronic EBV infection, 5 had hypersensitivity to mosquito bites, 4 had virus-associated hemophagocytic[en.wikipedia.org] syndrome . 6 of the severe group had natural killer-cell lymphocytosis in the peripheral blood.[wikidoc.org] syndrome . 6 of the severe group had natural killer-cell lymphocytosis in the peripheral blood.
