Abstract

Hemophagocytic syndrome is a rare complication of a systemic infection that can have a fatal outcome. The skin manifestations can present as erythematous patches or nodules, purpura, ulcers, or edema. But the histopathologic features solely consist of infiltration of benign histiocytes and hemophagocytosis. We report a case of a 67 year-old male patient diagnosed with hemophagocytic syndrome caused by Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection.
