LCH consists of a constellation of clinical presentations, which include Letterer-Siwe syndrome, a multisystem disease of young children characterized by cutaneous lesions containing infiltrates of Langerhans cells and a poor prognosis; eosinophilic granuloma, a solitary bone lesion; and Hand-Schuller-Christian disease that manifests as a characteristic triad of cranial bone lesions, diabetes insipidus, and exophthalmos (2).
Acute disseminated form is known as the Letterer-Siwe syndrome and chronic multifocal form is known as the Hand-Schuller Christian syndrome.
