Özet

Juvenile xanthogranuloma (JXG) is the most common type of non-Langerhans cell histiocytosis. The most common sites for development are the head and neck, and peripheral involvement is rare. Here, we present a 19-month-old patient who had a plantar lesion that did not clinically look to be JXG but received a histopathological diagnosis and review of the relevant literature.
