Langerhans cell histiocytosis, multifocal

Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare disorder characterized by the dysregulated proliferation of Langerhans cells and subsequent organ infiltration. Clinical manifestations range from a spontaneously healing isolated osteolytic lesion to a lymphoma-like syndrome with fatal multiorgan failure, in the absence of any cellular evidence of malignancy. Although the disease can present at any age, the peak age at diagnosis is between 1 and 3 years (summary by Arico et al., 1999). Egeler and D'Angio (1995) presented a classification of histiocytosis syndromes in children: class I, Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH); class II, histiocytosis of mononuclear macrophages other than Langerhans cells, including familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (267700); and class III, malignant histiocytic disorders, including histiocytic lymphoma. [from OMIM]

Heterogeneous

The production of the same or similar phenotypes (observed biochemical, physiological, and morphological characteristics of a person determined by his/her genotype) by different genetic mechanisms. There are two types: (1) allelic heterogeneity - when different alleles at a locus can produce variable expression of a condition; and (2) locus heterogeneity - the term used to describe disease in which mutations at different loci can produce the same disease phenotype. [from NCI]

Interstitial pulmonary abnormality

Interstitial lung disease is the name for a large group of diseases that inflame or scar the lungs. The inflammation and scarring make it hard to get enough oxygen. The scarring is called pulmonary fibrosis. Breathing in dust or other particles in the air is responsible for some types of interstitial lung diseases. Specific types include. -Black lung disease among coal miners, from inhaling coal dust. -Farmer's lung, from inhaling farm dust. -Asbestosis, from inhaling asbestos fibers. -Siderosis, from inhaling iron from mines or welding fumes. -Silicosis, from inhaling silica dust. Other causes include autoimmune diseases or occupational exposures to molds, gases, or fumes. Some types of interstitial lung disease have no known cause. Treatment depends on the type of exposure and the stage of the disease. It may involve medicines, oxygen therapy, or a lung transplant in severe cases.  [from MedlinePlus]

Immunoglobulins

there are two types of polypeptide chains responsible for the biological and immunological properties of the different immunoglobulins, the heavy chain and the light chain; they are linked by covalent and non-covalent forces to give a four-chain Y-shaped structure based on pairs of identical heavy and light chains; each chain consists of a variable region and a constant region which are coded for by different genes; some immunoglobulin classes occur as polymers of this basic monomer. [from CRISP]

Abnormality of the lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs. It is made up of. -Lymph - a fluid that contains white blood cells that defend against germs. -Lymph vessels - vessels that carry lymph throughout your body. They are different from blood vessels. -Lymph nodes - glands found throughout the lymph vessels. Along with your spleen, these nodes are where white blood cells fight infection. Your bone marrow and thymus produce the cells in lymph. They are part of the system, too. The lymphatic system clears away infection and keeps your body fluids in balance. If it's not working properly, fluid builds in your tissues and causes swelling, called lymphedema. Other lymphatic system problems can include infections, blockage, and cancer.  [from MedlinePlus]

Disorder of lung

When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. Millions of people in the U.S. have lung disease. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the United States. The term lung disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, COPD, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems. Some lung diseases can lead to respiratory failure. Dept. of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health.  [from MedlinePlus]

Hemic and Lymphatic Diseases

Hematologic diseases and diseases of the lymphatic system collectively. Hemic diseases include disorders involving the formed elements (e.g., ERYTHROCYTE AGGREGATION, INTRAVASCULAR) and chemical components (e.g., BLOOD PROTEIN DISORDERS); lymphatic diseases include disorders relating to lymph, lymph nodes, and lymphocytes. [from MeSH]
