Introduction Langerhans cell histiocytosis LCH is a disease of unknown etiology, characterized by proliferation of pathological Langerhans cells within different organs Histiocytic sarcoma Langerhans cell sarcoma Interdigitating dendritic cell sarcoma Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma. The lesion was elastic to the touch, painful, and impeded normal upper eyelid movement Fig. Albacete 2 Head of Section. The lesion was resected once again, and the histopathological report revealed LCH.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis, LCH, histiocytosis X, lymphoproliferative disease. In the skull, lesions usually have sharply defined borders with uneven involvement of the inner and outer table. Bone scintigraphy showed pathological focal hypercaptation in the enferemdad of the lesion, the latter resected by means of a combined craniofacial approach.

The soft tissue mass accompanying all osseous lesions can best be seen with CT scan and MRI 3ce latter showing a well-defined area of soft tissue surrounding a focal lesion, with altered bone marrow signal 2.

Four years following surgery, the patient was diagnosed with hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and diabetes insipidus. After adequate workup to determine the extent of the disease, no other lesions were encountered. Revision de la literatura. The overall 5-year survival rate for LCH is approximately MRI of the hips and femur showed isotense lesions on T1-weighted images, which showed enhacement with gadolinium, and high signal areas of bone replacement on T2-weighted images.

Discussion Hand-Schuller-Christian disease is a chronic disseminated form of histiocytosis X, in which idiopathic non-neoplastic proliferation of histiocytes occurs. There are no controlled studies establishing optimal treatment for LCH 2,7,9, Neoplasm of the immune system.

Bone scintigraphy showed a single, hypercaptating lesion in the right supraorbital region. Four months following the dw surgery, the patient presented with trismus, swelling and pain in the left upper jaw and in right and left mandibular bodies. To further this end, patients suffering from this disease, particularly those with multiorganic affectation, should be included in clinical trials carried out by the Histiocytosis Society.
