Abstract:   (1171 Views)
Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an uncommon hematological disorder-affecting infant and young child.
LCH is a rare disorder of the reticuloendothelial system associated with proliferation of
Langerhans cells and mature eosinophils.
LCH can involve any bone, but the most common are pelvis, ribs, skull, long bones, vertebra, and facial bones.
In this article, we report a case of LCH in a 15-months-old child involving the scapula and round shape swelling on left scapula with no erythema or tenderness and normal passive range of motion of shoulder and also aggressive periosteal reaction led to the diagnosis of LCH.
This patient undergone surgery and received chemotherapy with no complications or any recurrence after two years follow up
The purpose of reporting this case is to discuss clinical and radiological and histopathology features of LCH and role of doctors in diagnosing and managing such lesions.
