Abstract

Juvenile xanthogranuloma is a benign, self-healing disorder with characteristic lesions mainly involving the skin. Although most patients with juvenile xanthogranuloma have only cutaneous symptoms, recent articles have documented extracutaneous manifestations: systemic involvement of many organs has been reported and there is a known association between juvenile xanthogranuloma and childhood leukemia, most commonly juvenile chronic myelogenous leukemia. This case provides further corroboration, that in rare instances, juvenile xanthogranuloma may be associated with hematologic malignancies. © 2008 The Authors.
