Autoimmune lymphoproliferative Syndrome (ALPS) is a rare inherited disorder of apoptosis. It usually presents with chronic lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, and symptomatic cytopenia in a child. Herein, we report a 14-year-old boy with symptoms misdiagnosed as hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis who was treated before ALPS was diagnosed for the patient. This case should alert pediatricians to consider ALPS in differential diagnosis of a child with lymphadenopathy, splenomegaly, and cytopenia.
