The lesions may be well defined or poorly defined enfermecad or without associated sclerotic borders. However, in Case 3, due to the rapid and multiple bony relapses in the maxillofacial area following surgeries, we administered chemotherapy consisting of vinblastine and methotrexate, with favourable results.

This group is comprised of three diseases, eosinophilic granuloma, Hand-Schilller-Christian disease, and Letterer-Siwe disease, which describe progressively more aggressive and widespread manifestations of the same underlying pathology. For example, the rate of recurrence christtian the disease falls markedly with 6-month treatments of prednisone and vinblastine.

Multifocal multisystem LCH Letterer-Siwe disease, multiple organ involvement A lesion that affects bone, lung and skin; while histologically indistinct, scyuller is more aggressive than the other forms. Int J Dermatol ; 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.

Hematology and Oncology – Histiocytosis Pages. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Other soft tissues have been reported to be affected in the head and neck area, such as the eyelids, parotid and submandibular glands, the external auditory canal, the middle ear, the thyroid and the gastrointestinal tract 5,8, Adult Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. In the long bones, lesions usually arise in the diaphysis or metaphysis and are centred in the medullary cavity causing endosteal scalloping and eventually cortical penetration.
