Hemophagocytic reticulosis

Common Name(s)

Hemophagocytic reticulosis

Hemophagocytic reticulosis is a very rare disorder characterized by blood and blood cell abnormalities. It may also result in infection or inflammation of the brain. Symptoms begin at birth or soon after and become worse over time without treatment. Common symptoms include enlarged liver, spleen, fever, poor weight gain, vomiting, infections, and anemia (which occurs when the body does not have enough healthy red blood cells). A doctor can diagnose hemophagocytic reticulosis using blood tests. Medication can control the condition and more involved treatments such as stem cell transplant may also be necessary.
