Congenital self-healing reticulohistiocytosis or congenital self-healing Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) or Hashimoto-Pritzker syndrome is a rare, benign, auto involuting form of LCH. It usually presents at birth or soon thereafter with spontaneously regressing multiple or solitary dusky papules or nodules. The actual incidence remains unknown probably because of its benign and self-limiting nature. Herein, we present a similar case present since birth because of its rarity in nature.
