Introduction: Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare idiopathic disease in which there is an accumulation of histiocytic cells in various tissues of the body. Case Presen-tation: We present a 3-year-old boy who reported bilateral swelling of the skull from one year. Even though Langerhans cell histiocytosis can happen in bones throughout the body, it especially happens in the skull, with a high frequency in the parietal and frontal bone. Conclusion: Our investigation varies to some extent from this finding in that in our patient there was a joint association of various skull bone injuries, not a singular one.
