Abstract

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an unusual disease where pathologic Langerhans cells accumulate in various organs. Multiorgan involvement and young age of presentation are associated with frequent relapses and high mortality. We report a three year old girl, presenting with fatal pulmonary relapse following initial treatment, diagnosed on postmortem fine needle aspiration cytology. This case emphasizes the importance of cytology in the diagnosis of LCH.
