Title : Langerhans cell histiocytosis in a 12 year old – a case presentation


This presentation will aim to document Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) in a 12-year-old patient.
This 12-year-old girl was referred to our department with pain and swelling in the right mandible region extending into the right forearm. In this presentation, I will aim to discuss the sequence of the patient journey including the referral process, initial presentation, radiological and pathological investigations, and lastly, the treatment provided. I will also discuss, in broad terms, the epidemiology, types, typical presentations, and prognosis of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis.

Audience Takes Away Notes:

  • Understand that Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis is a rare disorder
  • Understand the epidemiology and prevalence of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis
  • Identify dental abnormalities and refer patients to appropriate secondary care in a timely manner
  • Identify Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis as a differential diagnosis of mandibular radiolucencies
  • Classify types of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis and understand what treatments are available and the survival rates
