Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an idiopathic condition affecting predominantly adult smokers. Histologically, LCH is characterized by a nodular, interstitial proliferation of Langerhans cells around the distal airways with associated eosinophils, lymphocytes, and macrophages. Associated findings, such as fibrosis, emphysematous change, and bronchiolitis can be reminiscent of other interstitial lung diseases. The markers CD1a and S100 have traditionally been used to distinguish… Expand
p53 Is a Helpful Marker in Distinguishing Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis From Langerhans Cell Hyperplasia
TLDR
CD31, if positive in the dermal infiltrate, is suggestive of a diagnosis of LCH, but exhibits a relatively low sensitivity for this purpose; p53 proved to be a helpful and accurate diagnostic immunohistochemical stain when distinguishing between LCH and LC hyperplasia. Expand
Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid analysis provides diagnostic information on pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
TLDR
The present results indicate that the survey of LCs in BALF with the aid of immunocytochemical evaluation and corresponding clinical data could play a critical role in establishing the diagnosis of PLCH, thus providing a less invasive approach than lung biopsy, which carries a risk of complications. Expand
Feline Pulmonary Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis with Multiorgan Involvement
TLDR
Transmission electron microscopy demonstrated intracytoplasmic organelles consistent with Birbeck's granules of Langerhans cells in the lesional histiocytes in all cats, except in the pancreas of one cat, compatible with PLCH with limited organ involvement of humans. Expand
Pathohistological aspects of pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis
Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis (PLCH) is a rare disease of unknown etiology, which most commonly affects men, smokers, aged from 20 to 40. It is diagnosed by histological analysis ofExpand
Adult Langerhans cell histiocytosis with caecal and regional lymph node involvement
TLDR
This case presented as a mass lesion located in the mucosa of the caecum and terminal ileum characterized by proliferation of histiocytic cells and accompanied by a moderate number of eosinophils and lymphoid cells. Expand

TLDR
Given that the lesional cells of PLCH express BRAF in some patients, MAPKinase pathway-targeted treatment might be useful for therapy-resistant patients, as well as the basic diagnostic approach to PLCH. Expand
Pathological and clinical relevance of selective recruitment of Langerhans cells in the respiratory bronchioles of smokers.
TLDR
Selective accumulation of Langerhans cells in the respiratory bronchioles of smokers may lead to the development of smoking-related pathological changes. Expand
Immunohistochemical Expression of Langerin in Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis and Non-Langerhans Cell Histiocytic Disorders
TLDR
Examination of Langerin immunoreactivity in a series of histiocytic disorders of monocyte/macrophage and dendritic cell derivation found it to be a highly sensitive and relatively specific marker for Langerhans cell Histiocytosis. Expand
Histiocytosis – cutaneous manifestations of hematopoietic neoplasm and non‐neoplastic histiocytic proliferations
TLDR
The role of an origin from skin residing histiocytes for the isolated cutaneous manifestation in some types of histiocytoses is suggested, and the pathogenesis of LHCH is reviewed based on insights on the central role of the mitogen‐activated protein (MAPK) kinase pathway. Expand
Multi-system Langerhans cell histiocytosis in children: a clinicopathologic study of 8 cases
TLDR
Multi-system Langerhans cell histiocytosis presents complex clinical symptoms and the diagnosis needs a combination of clinical features, image examination and histopathological characters and the prognosis is poor. Expand

Diagnostic relevance of Langerin detection in cells from bronchoalveolar lavage of patients with pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis, sarcoidosis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the usefulness of Langerin-directed immuno- and glycohistochemical monitoring of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid in the diagnosis of pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis. Expand
Genotypic analysis of pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis.
TLDR
Comparative genotypic analysis by using allelic loss (LOH) of polymorphic microsatellite markers associated with tumor suppressor genes indicates that the putative tumor suppressing genes situated on chromosomes 9p and 22q may play a role in the development of a subset of the LCH of the lung.

Pulmonary Langerhans cell histiocytosis: emerging concepts in pathobiology, radiology, and clinical evolution of disease.
TLDR
Advances in PLCH are discussed emphasizing the etiopathologic bases of the disease and currently available radiologic modalities for monitoring disease progression and current clinical predictors for PLCH outcomes remain poor. Expand
Langerhans'-cell histiocytosis (histiocytosis X)--a clonal proliferative disease.
TLDR
The detection of clonal histiocytes in all forms of Langerhans'-cell histiocytosis indicates that this disease is probably a clonal neoplastic disorder with highly variable biologic behavior. Expand
Langerhans cell histiocytosis in adults. Report from the International Registry of the Histiocyte Society.
TLDR
Langerhans cell histiocytosis in adults is most often a multisystem disease with the highest mortality seen in patients with isolated pulmonary involvement, and should be included in the differential diagnosis of disseminated or localised disease of the bone, skin and mucosa, as well as the lung and the endocrine and central nervous system, regardless of the age of the patient.

Aberrant Chemokine Receptor Expression and Chemokine Production by Langerhans Cells Underlies the Pathogenesis of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis
TLDR
The findings of this study emphasize that, despite abundant TNF-α, lesional LCs remain in an immature state and are induced to produce chemokines, which via autocrine and paracrine mechanisms cause not only the retention of the lesionalLCs but also the recruitment and retention of other lesional cells.

Clinical outcomes of pulmonary Langerhans'-cell histiocytosis in adults.
TLDR
The survival of adults with pulmonary Langerhans'-cell histiocytosis is shorter than that in the general population, and respiratory failure accounts for a substantial proportion of deaths among such patients. Expand

TLDR
The Langerhans cells in these tissues varied from few to many, and were most numerous in bronchioloalveolar cell carcinoma, sometimes appearing almost as frequently as tumor cells, and rare in some benign pulmonary conditions and other tumors. Expand

The present study has revealed the heterogeneity in the phenotype of gingival LC population and shown that Langerin seems the most specific marker for the study of LC. Expand
