Intensivists have long been struggling with the enigma of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). For example, this post from 2016 explores the challenge of dissecting HLH away from septic shock. The COVID pandemic has drawn some attention to the topic, although it's not clear to what extent COVID might truly reflect HLH. This chapter attempts to lay out the fundamental groundwork of HLH. Please note that the treatments for adult secondary HLH are not based on any strong evidence, so considerable controversy surrounds the entire topic.
