Toxoplasmosis

Toxoplasmosis is a disease caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. More than 60 million people in the U.S. have the parasite. Most of them don't get sick. But the parasite causes serious problems for some people. These include people with weak immune systems and babies whose mothers become infected for the first time during pregnancy. Problems can include damage to the brain, eyes, and other organs. You can get toxoplasmosis from . - Waste from an infected cat. - Eating contaminated meat that is raw or not well cooked . - Using utensils or cutting boards after they've had contact with contaminated raw meat . - Drinking infected water . - Receiving an infected organ transplant or blood transfusion. Most people with toxoplasmosis don't need treatment. There are drugs to treat it for pregnant women and people with weak immune systems. .

Lymphohistiocytosis, Hemophagocytic

A rare but potentially life-threatening disorder characterized by the proliferation of histiocytes and macrophages and phagocytosis of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It may be inherited or secondary, due to infections, autoimmune disorders, or underlying malignancies. Signs and symptoms include fever, lymphadenopathy, hepatomegaly, splenomegaly, and pancytopenia. [from NCI]

Hemophagocytic syndrome

A classification of rare, non-neoplastic, proliferative disorders of the hematologic system. Primary or familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is inherited with an autosomal recessive pattern with five known subtypes differentiated by specific genetic mutations. Secondary manifestation of HLH is usually seen in hyperactivated immunologic states such as infection, autoimmune disease or malignancy. Histiocytes in the bone marrow, spleen or lymph nodes become activated to the point that phagocytosis proceeds unchecked. Clinical signs usually present within the first decade and include fever, jaundice, hepatosplenomegaly, lymphadenopathy and skin rash. Prompt initiation of treatment improves survival though prognosis remains poor even with intervention. [from NCI]
