Author(s): Bipul Kumar Garg, Shrikant Pradeep Savant and Om Parshuram Patil
Abstract: EG is an uncommon tumor of bone and soft tissue usually presenting in children. It is the bony manifestation of Langerhans cell histiocytosis which shows multisystem involvement.
We report a case of a 4/Male who presented with a painful hip with limp and transtrochanteric tenderness, showing a well-defined osteolytic lesion over the Proximal Femur Metaphysis on XRay with collections of large number of eosinophils mixed with histiocytes on biopsy. Bone Curretage with chemical cauterization and allografting was done for this patient (1,2) which showed relief from symptoms as well as no recurrence in a 1 year follow up.
