ROJO ALVARO, J. et al. Langerhans cell histiocytosis. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2014, vol.37, n.1, pp.165-168. ISSN 1137-6627.

We describe the case of male diagnosed with histiocytosis of Langerhans cells. Histiocytosis X is an interstitial disease with a real incidence and an unknown prevalence that can be suspected due to epidemiological and radiological data. The diagnosis can be realized using BAL and/or anatomo-pathological study of a biopsy. The principal treatment is to give up the tobacco habit. Evolution can be favourable.

Keywords : Histiocytosis X; Langerhans cell; Interstitial lung disease.
