Disseminated cytomegalovirus-associated hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis in an elderly patient

Abstract

Fig. 1. (A–C) Features of the bone marrow (BM) aspirate and biopsy showing hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) staining. (A, B) BM aspirate showing histiocytic hyperplasia and prominent hemophagocytosis by activated histiocytes.
