Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis Co-existing with Papillary Carcinoma of Thyroid

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an uncommon disorder defined by the infiltration of large numbers of Langerhans cells into the affected organs, resulting in the formation of granulomas. The case of a 31-year-old man with a large, diffusely firm, non-tender, non-mobile thyroid swelling presenting with Langerhans cell histiocytosis and papillary thyroid cancer was reviewed in this chapter (PTC). Langerhans cell histiocytosis was shown to be present in the thyroid, as confirmed by fine needle aspiration cytology. There were no symptoms of structural intervention when the patient was assessed. There was no reduction in the size of the edoema after ten cycles of vinblastine and etoposide treatment.
