Hemophagocytosis, either primary (familial) or secondary (reactive), is a life threatening condition in childhood. Etiology should be vigorously searched to avoid a diagnosis of primary hemophagocytosis and treatment with cytotoxic drugs. A child with visceral leishmaniasis causing hemophagocytosis is presented.
