Macrophage activation syndrome (MAS) is a rare disorder characterised by benign, reactive, excessive, well-differentiated macrophage proliferation, secondary to an immune dysregulation in response to some triggering agents such as viral infection. We report a 3-year-old girl with MAS and pulmonary involvement. This is the first radiographic description of MAS on high-resolution CT.
