Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) is a very rare benign disease. It was previously known as Histiocytosis ‘X’. Histologically it is characterized by the atypical clonal proliferation of immature Langerhans cell histiocytes in addition to eosinophils, neutrophils and plasma cells. We report a case of Langerhans cell histiocytosis of left lower buccal groove in a 51-year-old woman. She was treated with local radiotherapy. This case is being reported due to rarity of LCH in adults.
