DURAN-GUTIERREZ, Luis F et al. Histiocytic sarcoma: Presentation of a probable case. Acta méd. Peru [online]. 2017, vol.34, n.2, pp.136-142. ISSN 1728-5917.

Histiocytic sarcoma is an extremely rare non-Langerhans cell disorder with an aggressive clinical course and limited options for therapy. We present the case of a young adult male patient, with prolonged fever, persistent hematological involvement, hepatosplenomegaly, and generalized lymphadenopathy with a fatal clinical course, in whom we arrived to this presumptive diagnosis considering the clinical, paraclinical, and histopathological characteristics, as well as immunohistochemistry

Keywords : Histiocytic sarcoma; Pancytopenia; Lymphoma; Lymphadenopathy; Colombia.
