Pancytopenia due to hemophagocytic syndrome as the presenting manifestation of babesiosis

, : Pancytopenia due to hemophagocytic syndrome as the presenting manifestation of babesiosis. American Journal of Hematology 50(1): 60-62

We present a case of hemophagocytosis during infection with the intraerythrocytic protozoan Babesia microti in a 47-year-old splenectomized renal allograft recipient. After therapy with clindamycin and quinine a relapse responded to atovaquone; durable remission was not achieved until trimethoprim/sulfa was added. We postulate the severity of our patient's syndrome was due to splenectomy and chronic immunosuppression. Babesiosis should be considered when immunocompromised patients develop pancytopenia.

Striatal dysfunction is thought to be a fundamental element in schizophrenia. Striatal dopamine dysfunction impacts on reward processing and learning and is present even at rest. Here, we addressed the question whether and how spontaneous neuronal...
