The pattern of bone lesions adjacent to joints in patients with Langerhans cell histiocytosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Nine patients with Langerhans cell histiocytosis and bone lesions adjacent to the shoulder or hip first diagnosed in childhood were followed for an average of 14.7 years (range, 7-22 years), and their clinical and radiographic histories were reviewed. In none of the patients did the lesion invade the joint cartilage or space or caused intraarticular fracture. All the lesions healed with or without treatment. At last follow-up, all patients had normal range of motion and normal joint development. We recommend only symptomatic management for such lesions.
