RUIZ, Oscar et al. Malignant histiocytosis: Case report. An. Fac. med. [online]. 2004, vol.65, n.4, pp.255-259. ISSN 1025-5583.

Fourteen year-old male patient referred from Huancayo who presented one month gastric intolerance, jaundice, fever and a lymph proliferative syndrome. Laboratory tests revealed severe pancytopenia due to phagocytosis. Haematologic and anatomy-pathology diagnosis was human malignant histiocytosis. We present this case due to its low frequency and the emergency character of the disease.

Keywords : Histiocytosis, malignant; pancytopenia; hepatomegaly; splenomegaly.
