Özet

Hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) is a life-threatening hematological disorder in immunocompromised patients. Although the number of patients with HPS following liver transplantation is scarce the outcome is usually fatal. We report a patient who developed HPS following living-related liver transplantation (LRLT) and was treated successfully by a combination of intravenous (IV) immunoglobulin (Ig) and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (GCSF).
