Abstract

There are few clinical data describing serum ferritin levels in the pathologic states characterized by proliferation of, and erythrophagocytosis by, neoplastic histiocytes (malignant histiocytosis) or reactive histiocytes (virus-associated hemophagocytic syndrome, VAHS). We here report high serum levels of ferritin in patients with malignant histiocytosis or VAHS.
