IYEYASU, Josie Naomi et al. Langerhans cell histiocytosis diagnosed in an elderly patient. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.4, pp. 241-243. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000400014.
Langerhans cell histiocytosis is a rare disease characterized by proliferation of Langerhans cells. We report a case of Langerhans cell histiocytosis in a 63-year-old patient, who presented an expansile periorbital lesion as the first symptom, in whom computed tomography revealed characteristic lung commitment of the disease. The case management, as well as radiological findings and outcomes are described.
