Abstract:   (1967 Views)

Histiocytosis is a term applied to a group of rare disorders of the reticuloendothelial system. Eosinophilic granuloma is the most benign and localized of the three Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) entities that could be solitary or multiple. In 2015, the incidence of the disease was reported to be 1 in 9100000. Eosinophilic granuloma can affect almost any bone, but commonly involves the mandible when the jaws are affected. Conventional treatment of LCH includes surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and steroid injections (alone or in combination). Spontaneous regression of localized disease has also been reported. We report a 30-year-old man with the LCH solitary eosinophilic granuloma in the mandible. The patient had lost all the mandibular teeth because of a misdiagnosis with periodontitis and osteomyelitis.
