Why Us?

Histiocytosis Program

We have Arizona’s only histiocytosis team exclusively focused on the disease.

Our team benefits from working with the vast resources available to Phoenix Children’s and our Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. This opportunity ensures our patients, and their loved ones, understand and benefit from the care and treatment journey.

A hallmark of histiocytosis is abnormal cell growth, but not necessarily cancerous growth. These cells are often found in the immune system and can manifest as Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH), Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), Juvenile Xanthogranulomatosis (JXG) and Rosai-Dorfman Disease (RDD), among others.
