The fiancée of late ESPN reporter, Edward Aschoff’s finally took to her Twitter handle and informed that Aschoff was diagnosed with HLH and multifocal pneumonia before he died. Katy Berteau said that the sports news reporter was first admitted to the hospital because multiple parts of his lungs were affected by pneumonia. However, he was later shifted to the emergency room when the antibiotic treatments started to fail and his condition became worse.
Berteau wrote in the tweet that many tests were conducted along with lung biopsies and bone marrow tests, which further revealed that Aschoff suffered from HLH. The sports news reporter passed away within a span of three days after being shifted to the ICU.
Aschoff’s death has raised several questions about his HLH diagnosis. HLH or Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis is a sporadic disease that harms the immune system of the body. The ESPN reporter died on his 34th birthday and no further details were revealed about his death back then.
Meanwhile, days before his death, Aschoff had posted a tweet on his Twitter handle asking his followers if anyone, who had remained healthy throughout their life, was suddenly diagnosed with bilateral or multifocal pneumonia in their 30s, only to end up having issues with their immune system.
