Fourteen year-old male patient referred from Huancayo who presented one month gastric intolerance, jaundice, fever and a lymph proliferative syndrome.

We present this case due to its low frequency and the emergency character of the disease.
Keywords: Histiocytosis, malignant; pancytopenia; hepatomegaly; splenomegaly.
