The histiocyte, macrophage of tissue monocyte is a cell of the mononuclear system. At the moment several different types of classification of the malignant histiocytic pathology are use. Seven cases of this pathology are documented: two cases of malignant histiocytosis, two cases of malignant histiocytic lymphoma, two cases of malignant histiocytoma of soft tissue and one malignant histiocytic tumor of bone.
