Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare condition of unregulated immune function. Prompt clinical detection and treatment of the condition is important for survival. Its association with hepatitis A is rare and only limited to case reports. We present a 4-year-old boy with hepatitis A associated HLH and treated successfully with steroid monotherapy. A review of literature has been done for hepatitis A associated secondary HLH.
