INTRODUCTION: Hemophagocytic lymphohistocytosis (HLH) is a rare and potentially fatal disease characterized by excessive immune response and cytopenia. We present a patient who presented with a febrile illness, pancytopenia and cardiogenic shock due to Takotsubo cardiomyopathy and diagnosed with HLH. Our case describes a very rare association of HLH with a unique form of reversible left ventricular dysfunction.
