Feline Progressive Histiocytosis Feline progressive histiocytosis (FPH) is a disease of middle-aged to older cats, the age ranged from 7 to 17 years (Vet Pathol. 2006;43(5):646-655). The initial presentation of FPH many be a solitary skin nodule, although usually multiple papules, nodules or plaques develop, measuring up to 1.5 cm in diameter Vet Pathol 43:5, 2006 Feline Progressive Histiocytosis 647 and as previously described. 11 Amino-9-ethyl-carbazole (Sigma Chemicals Co, St. Louis, MO) was used a Feline progressive histiocytosis has been increasingly reported since 1995. The disease appears to be most closely related to multiple persistent histiocytomas or Langerhans' cell histiocytosis in dogs. Affected cats usually have multiple nodules which are firm, non-pruritic and non-painful Monoclonal antibodies (MABs) used for immunophenotyping of 25 cats with feline progressive histiocytosis: fresh, snap-frozen tissue from 16 cats, formalin-fixed tissues from 9 cats. ∗ Table 2 Etiology of progressive dendritic cell histiocytosis is not known. Feline histiocytic sarcoma. Clinical presentation--Histiocytic sarcomas do occur in cats, but less frequently than in dogs. Some of the progressive dendritic cell histiocytosis eventually become very anaplastic and have features of histiocytic sarcoma
An indolent form of localized HS, progressive histiocytosis, originates in the skin of cats. Hemophagocytic HS originates in splenic red pulp and bone marrow macrophages in dogs and cats. In dogs, histiocytes in hemophagocytic HS express CD11d/CD18, which is a leuko-integrin highly expressed by macrophages in splenic red pulp and bone marrow Lomustine (CCNU) is an antineoplastic drug that is used for the dog's histiocytic disease and may be used in the cat as well at a dosage of 40-60 mg/m2 every 3-6 weeks Surgical removal of lumps is the first line of treatment if possible. Microbiological investigation of underlying causes of histiocytosis should, in theory, be next but can be expensive, is complex, and may not assist in diagnosis. Serology (looking for antibodies) for Leishmaniasis is helpful in endemic areas
Welcome to the Histiocytosis Site. This site was developed to provide a current information source for pet owners, clinical veterinarians and pathologists who wrestle dissecting the intricacies of diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of the spectrum of histiocytic proliferative diseases in dogs and cats Treatment with chemotherapeutics or immunosuppressive and immunomodulatory drugs was not successful. The etiology of FPH remains unknown. FPH is best considered an initially indolent cutaneous neoplasm, which is mostly slowly progressive and may spread beyond the skin in the terminal stage A more widespread form of cutaneous histiocytosis that may involve the eyes, nasal mucosa, and lymph nodes in addition to skin is called systemic histiocytosis (SH). Systemic histiocytosis is more commonly seen in young to middle aged Bernese Mountain dogs, Irish wolfhounds, Rottweilers and Labradors; however any breed may develop the disease . 1 In epitheliotropic form, the cellular infiltrate extends from the dermis up to the basement membrane, with single or clusters of cells located within the epidermis.
The Langerhans cells are immune cells that function to provide protective immunity to the tissues that are in contact with the outer environment -- the nose, stomach, intestines and lungs, but mainly the skin's surface. These cells are also referred to as dendritic cells, and histiocytes. A histiocytoma is a benign skin tumor that originates in the Langerhans cells Cutaneous histiocytosis is a benign form of histiocytosis in which there are small skin lesions around the head and neck which may come and go, and may or may not respond to treatment. Dogs with systemic histiocytosis also have head and neck lesions, with lymph nodes affected as well. In malignant histiocytosis, skin masses are uncommon. Discussion: Progressive histiocytosis of feline dendritic cells, in both epitheliotropic and non-epitheliotropic forms, is considered a clinically progressive and rare disorder. There are reports which include cytological, clinical, histological and immunohistochemical examinations, but the diagnostic characteristics regarding the non.

In cats, there are limited descriptions of clinical syndromes and there are no uniformly accepted classifications of feline histiocytic disorders, nor standardized staging or treatment protocols. Feline progressive histiocytosis (FPH) is the form most commonly described in the literature.1,2 Affected cats present with solitary or multiple. The disorder is rapidly progressive and does not wax and wane as does systemic histiocytosis. Few dogs survive >6 mo. Various chemotherapeutic regimens mentioned above have been used to treat both forms; hopefully, masitinib and other tyrosine kinase inhibitors used in combination with vincristine or other combinations of antineoplastic drugs.

The disease is characterized by A 14-year-old, male, crossbreed cat was presented progressive and invasive multisystemic. Histiocytosis. Transmission/cause: Reactive histiocytosis is due to an immune-mediated proliferation of a type of white blood cell called histiocytic or dendritic cells which normally occur in the skin.These cells are integral to the normal function of the immune system, and reactive histiocytosis is considered to be an aberrant immune response to an unknown stimulation of the immune system Histiocytic proliferative diseases in cats are less frequent and with narrower clinical and pathologic spectrum compared to dogs, lacking entities clearly equivalent to canine cutaneous histiocytoma and reactive histiocytoses (Moore and Affolter 2009).The most common feline histiocytic disorder is the so-called feline progressive histiocytosis, a unique feline entity that originates from the.

Various forms of DC proliferations have been documented in humans and dogs; their etiology is largely unknown. With the exception of a few case reports, histiocytic proliferations have not been characterized in cats. This study summarizes clinical, morphologic, and immunophenotypic features of a feline progressive histiocytosis (FPH) in 30 cats Untreated, the clinical course of disseminated histiocytic sarcoma is rapid and fatal.

. Isolated lesions typically present with pain in the thoracic spine or long bones in patients < 20 years of age Childhood LCH. Incidence. The annual incidence of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) has been estimated to be between two and ten cases per 1 million children aged 15 years or younger.[1,2,3] The male-to-female ratio (M:F) is close to one, and the median age of presentation is 30 months. A 4-year survey of 251 new LCH cases in France found an annual incidence of 4.6 cases per 1 million. Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) describes a group of syndromes that share the common pathologic feature of infiltration of involved tissues by Langerhans cells. Typically, the skeletal system is involved, with a characteristic lytic bone lesion form that occurs in young children or a more acute disseminated form that occurs in infants Most (50% to 70%) of the infections are subclinical. The ocular signs are the earliest manifestations of the systemic disease; they include acute, mild to severe, bilateral, serous to mucopurulent conjunctivitis, mostly with involvement of the palpebral conjunctiva. With the progression of disease, respiratory and/or gastrointestinal signs appear
