Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is an uncommon disorder affecting primarily children, common sites being bones and skin. We here report a case of 12 year old boy who was treated for LCH. Thirteen months after diagnosis, he was detected to have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Following chemotherapy for ALL (MCP-841), he achieved complete remission. This was followed by consolidation and maintenance therapy. Presently, the child is alive and continues to be in remission.
