Management of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis and Local Treatment or Careful Observation

Author(s): Euro Histio Net Work Group for LCH Guidelines (see introduction page), Created: 2011/03/10, last update: 2013/08/28

Whenever possible patients should be enrolled in ongoing clinical trials and treated according to the protocol. CHILDREN who are not enrolled in a clinical trial should be treated according to the guidelines presented here. Due to the diversity of clinical course of LCH, even recommendations which are established as standard of care may need to be critically appraised in an individual case. We suggest that you never hesitate to contact LCH experts in case that the clinical course raises questions or doubts. Treatment recommendations are based on site and extension of the disease.
