LCH of Bone : Mandible
Treatment of Jaw Lesions of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH): Most patients with jaw lesions and oral involvement have a unifocal disease, although other bones may be sometimes involved. Mandibular and maxillary lesions are often treated by curettage. For unresectable lesions, various treatment modalities have been tried, including low-dose radiation (not favored in pediatric patients), intralesional corticosteroid injections, and single or multiagent chemotherapy.
