Abstract

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis is a rare complication of dengue. We present 8 cases of dengue associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis diagnosed in our hospital during the dengue outbreak of 2012. All the cases were treated with a short (4 weeks) course of steroids along with supportive measures, and showed an excellent response.
