Advertisemen Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is considered a neo-plasia of Langerhans cells expressing S‐100, CD1a and CD207.1,2 Previous reports have suggested that LCH cells are more closely related to myeloid dendritic cell precursors than to Langerhans cells.3 LCH involves any organs in-cluding the central nervous system (CNS).1,2 There are n Childhood LCH is a rare disease, affecting 4-9 per 1,000,000 children below the age of 15 years. It is driven by somatic mutations in the MAPK pathway, arising in myeloid marrow progenitors. Both genders are affected by a slight male preponderance. The clinical spectrum of LCH varies from a single lesion affecting one organ system to severe multisystem disease with dysfunction of vital organs Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) and Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) are rare inflammatory myeloid neoplasms principally caused by mutations in the MEK-extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling pathway, most commonly involving BRAF. 1-5 LCH has a peak of incidence in childhood, but an increasing number of adults are now also diagnosed, including some with a poor outcome because. Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), previously known as histiocytosis X, is believed to be an autoimmune disorder. There is no obvious sex predilection although familial incidence has been reported. The disseminated form of this disease (Letterer-Siwe disease) is found in infants and young children, whereas the localized form (eosinophilic.
Summary. Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an inflammatory myeloid neoplasia caused by alterations (mutations) of several genes in the MAPKinase pathway. Several important studies published from 2010 to 2016 have immensely clarified the biology of LCH. (Badalian-Very, Berres, Chakrobarty) The cell of origin is a white blood cell known as a. Langerhans cell histiocytosis is a rare, multisystem disease that shows a particular predilection for hypothalamo-pituitary axis involvement. Diabetes insipidus is the most frequent permanent consequence of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, developing in around a quarter of patients. Although the exact prevalence of anterior pituitary hormone deficiencies is not known, it is probably high and. Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) consists of lesions composed of cells with a dendritic Langerhans cell (LC) phenotype.

Cutaneous Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disorder manifest in the proliferation of cells with phenotypical characteristics of Langerhans cells which involves the cutaneous structures 1.We have used the term 'cutaneous' in this review to differentiate from 'skin-limited' which implies the absence of systemic disease involvement 1,2 Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disorder showing a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations ranging from single cutaneous lesions to multifocal systemic disease [ 1, 2]. The typical infiltration consists of pathological monoclonal Langerhans cells together with lymphocytes, eosinophilic granulocytes and non-dendritic histiocytes [ 3]
Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) and Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) are caused by mutations of the MAPK pathway, most often BRAFV 600E, in myeloid dendritic cells that lead to some overlapping and other unique presentations of the two diseases.LCH occurs in both children and adults, but ECD is primarily found in the latter Non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis (non-LCH) is a rare multisystemic disorder thought to be derived from dendritic cells or macrophages. Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG), Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD), and Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD) previously were categorized as non-LCH disorders Langerhans cell histiocytosis. In the rare disease Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), an excess of cells similar to these cells are produced. However LCH cells stain positive to CD14 which is a monocyte marker and shows a different, hematopoietic origin for the disorder. LCH can cause damage to skin, bone and other organs Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is characterized by the proliferation of mononuclear cells resulting in granulomatous lesions. Patients may present with isolated or systemic disease 1 . Bone lesions are the most common manifestation of LCH radiologically occurring in around 80% of patients.
