Abstract

Eosinophilic granuloma is a Langerhans cell histiocytosis of the bone. Presentacion of eosinophilic granuloma with a single (monostotic) bone lesion is more common than multiple (polyostotic) bone lesions. The most commonly involved bone is the skull in children. In childhood presentations, prevalence is greater in males and it is most common in children 5 to 10 years of age. Conventional radiograpshs have served as the primary imaginng method used to identify LCH lesions. Histologic confirmation is necessary for the diagnosis.
