The histiocytoses are a diverse group of disorders ranging from purely reactive to frankly malignant processes. A unifying feature of these diseases is the presence of a proliferation of cells with morphologic, phenotypic, and functional characteristics of mononuclear phagocytes or dendritic cells. A subset of these disorders may involve the bone marrow, with the potential for significant diagnostic dilemmas. These disorders include storage diseases, haemophagocytic syndromes (haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytoses), Langerhans cell histiocytosis ('Histiocytosis X'), and malignant histiocytosis.
