Epstein-Barr virus-associated haemophagocytic syndrome in a patient with juvenile chronic arthritis.

We describe a case of reactive haemophagocytic syndrome (RHS) in a patient with previous polyarticular juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA). This is the first reported association of these conditions and may be indicative of defective immunological responses to viral infections in this form of JCA.
