  • January 24, 2020 Pediatric Grand Rounds (CME): Rebranding Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis Carl Allen MD, PhD - Texas Children's Cancer Center

    The Stanford Department of Pediatrics Presents The Anne T. Bass Lecture Series in Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation

    Children with Langerhnans cell histiocytosis (LCH) develop granulomatous lesions with characteristic clonal CD207+ dendritic cells that can arise as single lesions or life-threatening disseminated disease.  Despite the wide range of clinical presentations, LCH lesions are histologically indistinguishable based on severity of disease, and uncertain classification as an immune versus neoplastic disorder has historically challenged development of optimal clinical strategies for patients with LCH.  Recently, activating somatic mutations in MAPK pathway genes, most notably BRAFV600E, have been discovered in almost all cases of LCH.
