LCH  A congenital self-healing reticulohistiocytosis (Hashimoto-Pritzker histiocytosis) is characterized by predominantly cutaneous involvement and spontaneous regression. Letterer-Siwe Disease is an acute disseminated form, which typically presents with hepatosplenomegaly, fever, thrombocytopenia and anemia. This is the form that this patient appears to have. A more chronic process is Hand-Schuller-Christian Disease, characterized by the classic triad of diabetes insipidus, exophthalmus and destructive skull lesions. Isolated Langerhans cell histiocytosis is termed eosinophilic granulomas when it involves bone or the lung. In the latter setting, this disease is associated with smoking. Importantly, the prognosis for Langerhans cell lesions is dependent on the clinical stage, not the histopathology. The presence of necrosis, atypia, and mitotic figures do not by themselves make Langerhans cell histiocytoses malignant. Adverse prognostic factors include disease onset at less than two years of age, and increasing number of involved dysfunctional organs. by bernadine

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system attacks itself. The pattern of joints affected is usually symmetrical, involves the hands and other joints and is worse in the morning. Rheumatoid arthritis is also a systemic disease, involving other body organs, whereas osteoarthritis is limited to the joints. Over time, both forms of arthritis can be crippling. by cristina

Pulmonary edema is typically caused by filling of alveoli in the lungs by fluid leaking out of the blood. Edema, in general, means swelling. This typically occurs when fluid from inside blood vessels seeps outside the blood vessel into the surrounding tissues, causing swelling. Pulmonary edema is the term used when edema happens in the lungs. by graciela

Digital Clubbing - it is a common symptom of respiratory disease, congenital heart disease, and gastrointestinal disorders. The exact mechanism is not known. It is believed that the stimulus for clubbing is hypoxia. Hypoxia leads to opening up of deep arteriovenous fistulas which increase the blood supply of the fingers causing it to hypertrophy. #respiratory #rt #rcp by Hercio Dias
