Abstract

Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) has not been described earlier in the context of 2009 pandemic influenza A (H1N1) virus infection, although certain populations are thought to be at risk for complicated pandemic influenza A disease. Here, we report the second case of HLH after infection with the influenza A H1N1 virus treated with peroral oseltamivir successfully.
