Résumé

Erdheim-Chester disease is a rare form of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis. It is an inflammatory disorder associated with BRAF V600E mutation in 50% of cases. This multisystem disease is rarely associated with spinal involvement. Neurological involvement is an independent predictive factor of poor prognosis. The diagnosis is histopathological based on CD68-positive and CD1A-negative histiocytes. Treatment with interferon-alpha is an independent predictor of survival in Erdheim-Chester disease and vemurafenib has also been shown to be effective for BRAF V600E mutation. We report a clinical case of a 51-year-old patient with multiple and rare locations of Erdheim-Chester disease, particularly at the sphenoid sinus. (C) 2018 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
