Answer

The clinical manifestations of histiocytosis depend on the organs and systems involved, as well as their level of involvement. Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) can be localized and manifest as pain or may even be asymptomatic, as is the case in isolated bone lesions. LCH can also involve multiple organs and systems, with clinically significant symptoms and consequences.
