The authors have experienced a case of histiocytosis-X. A 7-year-old male patient had three tender masses, one on the right parietal region, another on the left parietal region, the other on the left occipital region and revealed exophthalmus on his left side. Plain skull films showed multiple punched out skull defects and on lumbar spine films, collapse of body of second lumbar vertebra was detected. Among the masses, the largest right parietal one was excised totally. The final diagnosis revealed histiocytosis-X on pathologic basis and he was given subsequent chemotheraphy.
