dkfatimah posted:
I have a 15 year old son and he is having Hemophagocytic Syndrome. He got it in July 2013 and until now he is on Prednisilone of 30mg. His condition initially affected his red, white blood cells and plateletes too low with inflammed fatty tissues which creating lumps on his hips,legs,arms.That was diagnose last five months which after that he was a bit ok eventhough lumps still there. But now its reacting actively (antibody reaction agressive) which attacking his face esp on left cheek and right jaw developing lumps and around his eyes. As well his hair growth affected where he lost some of his hair. My son is not very happy on this changes and he become a quiet boy and upset. Need to share this with those who have the same illness like my son and also an advise from any specialist on this illness.
