Abstract: Langerhans cell histiocytosis, also known as histiocytosis X, is a rare proliferative disorder of histiocytes. Spinal involvement in the course of Langerhans cell histiocytosis in adult is rare, and epidural location is exceptional. We present a rare case of epidural involvement by Langerhans cell histiocytosis in a 71-year-old man to highlight the importance of considering Langerhans cell histiocytosis in the differential diagnosis of epidural spinal cord compression.
