          Abstract

          Reactive haemophagocytic syndrome (RHS) is a hyperinflammatory disorder often occurring in the background of several disorders such as infections, malignancies, and rheumatic diseases. Recently, a score known as the HScore was developed for the diagnosis of RHS. In the original study, most of the patients had underlying haematological malignancy or infection and the best cut-off value for the HScore was 169 (sensitivity 93%; specificity 86%). In this study we aimed to analyse the performance of the HScore in rheumatic disease-related RHS.
