We reported the cases of two children with Kikuchi's disease who developed hemophagocytic syndrome (HS) and responded well to intravenous immunoglobulin and corticosteroid therapy. Childhood HS may be associated with Kikuchi's disease and seems to have a less aggressive clinical course and better prognosis. Chemotherapy could be reserved for those who fail to respond to such a regimen.
