The awareness ribbon color for Histiocytosis is dark or navy blue.
The month of September is Histiocytosis awareness month, this is the time the Histio Community joins together to raise awareness for histiocytosis.
There are three major classes of histiocytosis:
LCH in infants may affect the skin only. In some cases, skin-only LCH may get worse over weeks or months and become a form called high-risk multisystem LCH.
Pulmonary histiocytosis X is a specific type of histiocytosis X that involves swelling of the small airways and small blood vessels in the lungs.
Histiocytosis X often affects the whole body. A disease that affects the whole body is called a "systemic" disorder.
