E11: Development and Validation of the HScore

March 4th, 2018 · Comments

This week the rheumageddon is postponed (yet again) because I researched a paper about the HScore, a scoring criteria for hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), during a clinical vignettes presentation for fellowshiop. It made sense to do a podcast about that paper and save the rheumageddon for next week.  Hope y'all enjoy!  Paper can be accessed here
