Abstract

We report the radiological findings and more specifically the MRI features in three typical cases of Langerhans' cell histiocytosis of the head and neck. All three cases were of solitary eosinophilic granuloma of bone: two mandibular and one temporal bone lesion. Reports on the MRI features of head and neck eosinophilic granulomas are rare.
