Abstract:

Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD) is a non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis, which featured organs and tissues infiltrated with foam cells, causing lipoid granulomatosis and fibrosis. The incidence of ECD is extremely low, since it was first reported in 1930. When cardiac was involved predicting worse prognosis. Here, we report a case of ECD presenting as a pericardial effusion confirmed by bone biopsy. A 66-year-old man was admitted because of dyspnea and legs edema. The echocardiogram revealed moderate-large volume pericardial effusion. The PET/CT revealed pathognomonic coated aorta and highest uptake in both long bones, we performed a bone marrow biopsy. ECD was confirmed by foamy non-Langerhans histiocytes with CD68+CD1α-S100-.
