Zusammenfassung

Histiozytosen des Kindesalters sind Erkrankungen des Monozyten/Makrophagensystems unbekannter Ätiologie. Den vielfältigen Krankheitsgruppen gemeinsam ist eine Infiltration und/oder Anhäufung von Histiozyten (Monozyten/Makrophagen) in den betroffenen Geweben. Der biologische Charakter (klonale Expansion/reaktiv) ist bisher unklar [5, 9, 11, 16].
