Based on the clinical features and aforesaid investigations, the differential diagnoses of nodular/histoid leprosy, reticulohistiocytosis
, subcutaneous sarcoidosis, cutaneous localised leishmaniasis, lymphocytoma cutis, mycosis fungoides and post kala azar dermal Leishmaniasis were considered.
Roentgenologic features of osteoarthritis, erosive osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, Reiter's disease, multicentric reticulohistiocytosis
, and progressive systemic sclerosis.
This process encompasses several disorders of variable extent and severity, historically known as histiocytosis X, Letterer-Siwe disease, Hand-Schuller-Christian syndrome, eosinophilic granuloma of bone, and self-healing reticulohistiocytosis
is a rare systemic disease presenting with subcutaneous nodular lesions and symmetrical, erosive polyarthritis.
An unusual form of histiocytosis, namely congenital self-healing reticulohistiocytosis
(CSHRH or Hashimoto-Pritzker disease) generally follows a benign clinical course and its incidence may be underestimated due to a high rate of spontaneous resolution and lack of clinical recognition.
Solitary congenital self-healing reticulohistiocytosis
in monozygotic twins.
Etanercept has been used in the treatment of Behcet disease, inflammatory muscle disease, multicentric reticulohistiocytosis
, adult-onset Still disease, and graft-versus-host disease.
