  • BACKGROUND Recurrent or refractory infections can be a warning sign of primary immunodeficiency diseases (PID). Such mimicking PID (mPID) can occur in patients with Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). Because some cases with refractory molluscum contagiosum-like lesions and persistent otorrhea are finally diagnosed with LCH, we wondered whether such mPID can occur in LCH children and affect on their prognosis. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed all children with LCH at our institute from… CONTINUE READING
