Eruptive histiocytoma of childhood

Abstract: A 9-year-old girl had a widespread papular eruption that was histologically characterized by benign histiocytes that were acid phosphatase-positive, but that lacked Langerhans' granules ultrastructurally. New lesions had continued to develop since the patient was 3 months old, and individual lesions had resolved over a period of two to three months. The histopathologic, histochemical, and ultrastructural findings in this patient were similar to those previously described for eruptive histiocytomas in adults. P… Show more

“…GEH is more common in adults, with a more extensive distribution of lesions and occasional mucosal involvement. The histologic appearance may be similar to BCH13,14. LCH has more widespread skin and visceral organ involvement and are positive for S100 and CD1a.…”

“…Ultrastructural examination revealed many characteristic lysosomal structures in patient 7. GEH in adults is self‐healing and the other cases in children also showed spontaneous regression (22–26).…”

“…GEH is a rare, benign, histiocytic disorder characterized by recurrent crops of small, firm, tan to reddish papules that appear in a symmetrical fashion on the face, trunk, and arms, affecting mainly adults (5). Recently eight cases of GEH in children have been described (6,22–25). Among those cases, ours (patient 7) was included (6).…”

“…Liga, jog gydymas, eiga taip pat konst ruojami ir sociokultūriniais aspektais: egzistuoja specifinė medicinos kalba (žar-gonas); specifinis ligos įvardijimo, klasifikavimo ir paaiškinimo būdas; gydytojo -paciento santykiai, šiuolaikiniai gydymo procesą lydintys ritualai 19 ir pan. Winkelmannas pažymi, kad etnomedicina turi būti analizuojama taip pat, kaip ir politinė ar religinė sistema, kalba ar kitos simbolinės sistemos 20 : pvz., oficialioji biomedicina įstatymais numatyta tvarka sprendžia, kurie vaistai pacientui bus prieinami gydant atitinkamą ligą, o įsta-tymais apibrėžtos (suteiktas kodas) ligos (ypač "naujos", sudėtingai diagnozuojamos ir plačiojoje visuomenėje ne itin pripažįstamos 21 ) sukuria ir kultūrines normas, mat šis formalus matas numato, kada žmogus laikomas sergančiu, kada -ne.…”
