The term Langerhans granule has been introduced recently as a designation for a characteristic structure in the Langerhans cell of the epidermis and in the infiltrating histiocyte in histiocytosis X (1, 2). This unusual structure is found within the cytoplasm or attached to the plasma membrane, is in the form of a plate or disc, and is composed of two dense membranes separated by a central core of moderate density. Its dimensions vary, and the central core may have a repeating period. No… CONTINUE READING
