Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare proliferative disorder in which Langerhans's cells accumulate in a variety of organs. LCH affects mostly children and adolescents, involves one or many body systems or tissues such as bone, lung, hypothalamus, posterior pituitary gland, skin, lymph node, liver, and various soft tissues. The clinical features of LCH depend on the extent of involvement. Here in, we report a case of 2-year-old girl presented with fever, swelling in front and behind of right ear and ear discharge. She had anaemia and lytic lesions on skull x-ray and high resolution computed tomography. Biopsy was performed and histopathology and immunohistochemistry findings suggested diagnosis of LCH.
