Haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is not rare but may be fatal. It may be complication that can progress when Influenza A confounds immunocompromised children . We report a case of Haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis complicating an influenza A infection in a one year and 4 months old well thriving girl. The child had come with simple influenza infection which soon progressed to ARDS and multi organ failure when HLH was suspected and bone marrow was done which conformed and the other criteria were met for the diagnosis of HLH. The child was appropriately treated and supported by ECMO and could be discharged home.
