Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare cancer that begins in LCH cells (a type of dendritic cell which fights infection). Sometimes there are mutations (changes) in LCH cells as they form.This causes LCH cells to build up in certain parts of the body, where they can damage tissue or form lesions.LCH may occur at any age, but is most common in young children.
