To the Editor: Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease that usually occurs in the first two decades of life.[1] Multisystem-LCH (MS-LCH) mainly affects youth.
in eyes examined in the prodromal period before the onset of clinical EKC, the epithelial, Bowman's, and stromal layers appeared normal in iVCM, while the subbasal plexus showed an increased number of Langerhans cells (Figure 1).
(2) Admixed Langerhans cells can be present, as long as they are a minor component.
The histological appearance typically seen in ECD is CD68(+), CD1a(-), S-100(-/low) non langerhans cell histiocytes.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an uncommon disease of unknown pathogenesis.
Three patients had lesions that involved the skull only [Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH): 2, fibrous dysplasia: 1], 3 had lesions that partly infiltrated the dura (Langerhans cell histiocytosis: 2, follicular carcinoma metastasis: 1); brain involvement was not seen (Table 3).
The gold standard in this field involves the use of primary islets of Langerhans, which are difficult and costly to obtain.
