Eosinophilic granuloma (EG) is the benign localized form of histiocytosis. Owing to the relative rarity of the condition, diagnosis is often delayed or missed, and many questions remain unanswered, ranging from cause and pathogenesis to therapy. Observation and immobilization are adequate for improvement of the condition in most patients. However, treatment other than simple observation is recommended in patients with symptomatic EG. This article presents a 10-year follow-up study of a 15-year-old girl with a symptomatic multifocal EG treated effectively by monitored chemotherapy and orthosis.
