Abstract: 

Introduction: The childhood histiocytoses are a grouped of rare disorders in which they have in common a prominent accumulation of cells of the monocytemacrophage system of bone marrow origin.
Three classes of disease are recognized. Some of them have benign and others malignant courses. They have variable presentations rangin from a solitary lesion of bone to a multisystem disorder. Skeleton is the most common system involved. Tissue biopsy is diagnostic and after that a thorough clinical and laboratory evaluation should be undertaken. In single system disease, treatment is generally curettage or local radiation while chemotherapy is used for multisystem involvement.
Case report: We present a 2-years-old boy from Qeshm Island with chief complaint of skin lesions. The parents had noticed a bony defect in right frontal 10 months prior to admission, but as they thought it is due to blunt trauma, they didn’t seek medical care.
Conclusion: The diagnosis is based on tissue biopsy and then completes clinical and laboratory investigations. Young age and multisystem involvement have poor prognosis.
