Abstract

The objectives of this article were: (1) to review common and rare manifestations of systemic and pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis, Rosai-Dorfman disease, Erdheim-Chester disease and juvenile xanthogranuloma; (2) to provide the reader with important pathologic, epidemiologic and clinical features of these diseases. The histiocytoses are a diverse group of diseases which typically manifest with multiorgan involvement. Understanding the pathologic, epidemiologic and clinical features of these entities can help the radiologist suggest an accurate diagnosis of histiocytosis when typical imaging features are encountered.
