Abstract

Juvenile xanthogranuloma is the most frequent type of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis. It most commonly presents in infancy and early childhood; manifesting as cutaneous lesions on the head, neck, and trunk that suddenly appear and usually undergo spontaneous regression. Extracutaneous involvement, although rare, may occur along with the cutaneous form or in isolation. It most frequently involves the eye, deep subcutaneous tissues, lung, and liver. Involvement of the heart is exceptionally rare, with only seven reports found in the English literature, all affecting infants. We present the first report of an intracardiac juvenile xanthogranuloma in an adult.
