Histiocytosis is a heterogeneous group of disease entities, comprised by two main categories, namely Langerhans and non-Langerhans cell histiocytoses. Central nervous system involvement in histiocytosis is considered very rare and is often secondary to affection of anatomically related bone structures and/or multi-organ disease. We present a never-before described case of rare childhood histiocytosis with hybrid features of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and juvenile xanthogranuloma confined to the central nervous system in a 2- and a half-year-old boy with distinct treatment response to clofarabine. The case also emphasizes the diagnostic significance of stereotactic brain biopsy.
