Abstract

Concentrations of serum amyloid A protein (SAA) were measured in patients with hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS). There was a significant correlation between SAA and ferritin (p = 0.0003), while there was no significant correlation between C-reactive protein (CRP) and ferritin. These results indicate that SAA could be a useful clinical marker for activity of HPS.
