A case of Chediak-Higashi syndrome is reported in a two-year-old girl who presented with fever, hepatosplenomegaly, and pancytopenia without any history of previous infections. Parental consanguinity was present. Presence of giant granules in leucocytes and melanocytes of the hair confirmed the diagnosis. Though most patients undergo a variable period of recurrent infections before going into the accelerated phase, this case was unusual in that her primary presentation was in the accelerated phase.
