G the possibility that some common substance in the environment — perhaps a viral infection — may trigger the disease by causing the immune system to overreact. However, researchers have not yet identified an infection or substance that triggers the disease. One intriguing observation is that almost all people with the disease whose lungs are involved are current or former cigarette smokers. generic viagra online cheap generic viagra viagra online cheap cheap generic viagra india buy viagra http://floridalighttacklecharters.com/thq-cheap-generic-viagra-gn/ best generic viagra generic viagra online viagra online buy generic viagra usa However, even among smokers, this condition is rare, and smoking seems to play no role in the disease when it affects parts of the body outside the lungs. Other theories suggest that the primary cause of langerhans' cell histiocytosis is an abnormal immune system. Langerhans' cell histiocytosis is rare, affecting one in 250,000 children and one in 1 million adults in the united states. Although it can strike at any age, it is most common in children and young adults, with about 70% of cases occurring before age 17. During childhood, langerhans' cell histiocytosis peaks between ages 1 and 3. Langerhans' cell histiocytosis includes disorders previously considered separate diseases: diffuse reticuloendotheliosis, eosinophilic granuloma, hand-schã¼ller-christian disease and letterer-siwe disease. Symptoms symptoms can include: persistent pain and swelling on a bone, especially in an arm or leg a bone fracture, especially one that happens without any apparent trauma or after only a minor injury loose teeth, if langerhans' cell histiocytosis affects the jaw bones ear infection or a discharge from the ear, if langerhans' cell histiocytosis affects skull bones near the ear skin rash, usually on the buttocks or scalp swollen glands (enlarged lymph nodes) enlarged liver, with or without signs of liver malfunction, such as yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice) and abnormal accumulation of fluid in the abdomen (ascites) bulging eyes, caused by langerhans' cell histiocytosis behind the eyes shortness of breath and cough, if the lungs are involved stunted growth and excessive urination caused by hormone abnormalities less common symptoms include fever, weight loss, irritability and inability to maintain weight and fitness ("failure to thrive"). Diagnosis because langerhans' cell histiocytosis is rare and tends to cause symptoms that could be caused by more common medical problems, this disease often is difficult to diagnose, and diagnosis can take time. Because of this, your doctor may ask questions that are related to those other medical problems, rather than about langerhan.

Summer On Seeker's Island It’s the time of year when a good beach (or lake...or backyard) read is indispensable. I got together with nine of my New York Times bestselling author friends to bring you ten short stories set on sultry Seeker’s Island, Florida. But because there’s nothing I love better than a good Irishman, the hero and heroine of my story are from Castlequin, County Kerry, Ireland! In “Charmed,” find out whether goldsmith Siobhan O’Brien is quite ready to let another male from the Scanlon clan into her life. To learn more, visit Seeker’s Island at www.seekersisland.com.
