These patients also had a higher incidence of diabetes insipidus, correlating with the higher frequency of lesions. Extensive surgery is also not indicated. Presence of Birbeck granules on electron microscopy and immuno-cytochemical features e.

CT or MRI scans are histiocitosis de celulas de langerhans in assessing response of a soft tissue mass associated with a bone lesion, but are not particularly helpful in assessing the response of lytic bone lesions. Recurrent cytogenetic or genomic abnormalities would also be required to demonstrate convincingly that LCH is a malignancy.

CT and ultrasound imaging abnormalities are often found.
