Familial haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (FHL) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder of immune dysregulation associated with uncontrolled T cell and macrophage activation and hypercytokinaemia. HLH affects primarily pediatric population, mainly infants of less than 3 months of age. It is important to have a high index of suspicion for diagnosis since an early diagnosis is crucial to decrease the significant mortality associated the disease.
