In each case there was long-lasting spontaneous regression of disease. Analysis of blood mononuclear cells revealed a raised T4:T8 (helper:suppressor T lymphocyte) ratio at diagnosis but a normal ratio during remission. These observations support the argument that multi-system histiocytosis X, even in infants… CONTINUE READING
