Sažetak
Little is known about the cause, nature, treatment and prognosis of pulmonary Langerhans' cell histiocytosis (LCH) in adults. We report the case of a 44-year-old female non-smoker suffering from pulmonary histiocytosis who after a 7-year remission period relapsed with both lung and bone disease. Using a combination of corticosteroids, methotrexate and bone irradiation treatment, the patient achieved total disease remission. The patient was a non-smoking female who has had long-term and swift remission of the disease on two occasions.
