Little progress has been made in finding the causes of LCH. Epidemiologic studies are difficult because of the rarity of this disease. Although several associations have been demonstrated in case-control studies, particularly that with thyroid disease, no causal relationships have been documented. Additional case-control studies may uncover the to-date missing lead that may prove fruitful for epidemiologic investigation.
