Surveillance is as follows:

  • Yearly ophthalmologic examinations
  • For atypical or adolescent- or adult-onset CHS - Annual abdominal ultrasound examination for hepatosplenomegaly, complete blood cell (CBC) count for cytopenias, monitoring for liver dysfunction, and measurement of serum ferritin concentration and soluble interleukin 2 receptor [23]
