Abstract

Congenital self-healing reticulohistiocytosis is a rare, congenital, benign, self-healing variant of Langerhans cell histiocytosis. It usually appears as multiple papules or nodules; however, occurrence of the solitary type is very rare. We report on a case of solitary congenital self-healing reticulohistiocytosis in a 29-day-old girl who presented with a papule on her sole. Two months later, the lesion regressed with a slight scar. Based upon clinical and histologic findings, we made a diagnosis of solitary congenital self-healing reticulo-histiocytosis. In this report, we summarized reported cases of solitary congenital self-healing retioculohistiocytosis in Korea with a review of the literature.
