Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a clinical condition which result in cytotoxic T cell and antigen presenting cell overproduction and also their cytokines. Hepatitis A Virus associated HLH is very rare condition among other viruses. This condition is often difficult to diagnose, so treatment is often delayed.
