Abstract: LANGERHANS cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disease, mainly involving the bone, skin, lung, liver, spleen, and skin.1 The heterogenenous nature of LCH makes it difficult to diagnose. Not only do the involved organs vary from case to case, but also its natural history. Herein, we describe a rare case of conjuctival LCH in an Asian woman.

Key words: Langerhans cell histiocytosis, conjunctiva, immunohistochemistry
