    Allogeneic stem cell transplant is curative for haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) and refractory Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). However, patients frequently have significant pre-transplant morbidity and there is high TRM. Because HLH is caused by immune dysregulation, we surmised...
