Case of kikuchi’ s disease and systemic lupus erythematosus associated with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome and complicated by hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS)

Koushik Pan, Subrata Chakrabarti, Rajdip Choudhury, Anup Sarkar.

Kikuchi disease is a rare benign self limited lymphadenopathy. It is often associated with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus which can be diagnosed before; at the same time or after a diagnosis of Kikuchi disease is made. Again SLE is usually associated with APLA syndrome. Furthermore both SLE and Kikuchi disease can be complicated by HPS. We present a unique case in which Kikuchi disease and SLE were diagnosed together and disease course was complicated by Hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS). SLE was also associated with Anti Phospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS) in this patient.

Key words: Kikuchi, SLE, APLA, Hemophagocytic syndrome
