ABSTRACT
Introduction: El xantogranuloma juvenil (XGJ) es una histiocitosis de células no Langerhans, benigna, autocurativa, que afecta con mayor frecuencia a lactantes y niños, que se caracteriza por pápulas amarillentas asintomáticas y/o nódulos situados en la piel y otros órganos y que consisten en un infiltrado de macrófagos con un variable grado de lipidización en ausencia de un trastorno metabólico. Presentamos el caso de un varón, adolescente, de 14 años de edad, con múltiples lesiones tumorales gigantes en brazos y pies, limitadas a la piel y que no requirieron tratamiento alguno. AbstractIntroduction: Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG), a non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis, is benign and self-healing disorder, that affects most often infants and children, characterized by asymptomatic yellowish papules and/or nodules located in the skin and other organs consisting of an infiltrate of macrophages with a variable degree of lipidization in the absence of a metabolic disorder. We report the case of a male teenager of 14 years old, with multiple giant tumoral lesions in the arms and feet, limited to the skin and who did not require any treatment.
