Severe hemophagocytic syndrome developing after treatment initiation for disseminated Mycobacterium tuberculosis: Case report and literature review

He presented with symptoms of tuberculosis and Mycobacterium tuberculosis was diagnosed. Later, while on anti-tuberculous treatment, he developed pancytopenia and bone marrow aspirate showed large macrophages with increased phagocytosis of mature and immature blood elements typical of hemophagocytic syndrome.
