Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is an infrequent disorder occurring as a result of unrestrained immune activation. Tuberculosis (TB) is a catastrophic cause of secondary HLH if not treated appropriately. Here, we report an unusual case of secondary HLH associated with abdominal TB. Although rare, secondary HLH should be ruled out in patients with TB, especially in the presence of pancytopenia.
