Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an abnormal clonal proliferation of Langerhans cells, abnormal cells deriving from bone marrow and capable of migrating from skin to lymph nodes. Symptoms range from isolated bone lesions to multisystem disease Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is caused by clonal expansion of myeloid precursors that differentiate into CD1a+/CD207+ cells in lesions that leads to a spectrum of organ involvement and dysfunction. The pathogenic cells are defined by constitutive activation of the MAPK signaling pathway. Trea Langerhans cell histiocytosis (also called histiocytosis X) is a rare disorder that primarily affects children. This disorder is characterized by an abnormal increase in certain immune cells called histiocyte cells. Histiocyte cells are a form of white blood cells that help the immune system destroy foreign materials and fight infection Histiocytosis, Langerhans-Cell* / therapy Humans Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Kinases / antagonists & inhibitors Myeloid Cells / physiology Substances Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Kinases Grant support P50 CA126752/CA/NCI NIH HHS/United States.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) LCH is an unusual condition. It has some characteristics of cancer but, unlike almost every other cancer, it may spontaneously resolve in some patients while being life-threatening in others. LCH is classified as a cancer and sometimes requires treatment with chemotherapy Although the cause of Langerhans cell histiocytosis is unknown, Langerhans cell histiocytosis can often behave like cancer and is therefore treated by cancer specialists. A histiocyte is a normal immune cell found in many parts of the body, especially the bone marrow, bloodstream, skin, liver, lungs, lymph glands, and spleen
Langerhans cell histiocytosis is a rare disorder that damages tissues all over the body. It occurs when your child has very high levels of a type of immune cell (Langerhans cell).
