On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition, Katrina Sanders, we are continuing the conversation around periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic disease discussing patients that present with histiocytosis syndromes.
“These are patients that if they have any type of a syndrome of histiocytosis, they, for whatever reason, experience an abnormal increase in the amount of histiocytes within their body.”
“When patients experience systemic involvement, they may even experience lung problems, generalized lymphatic swelling, hormonal issues, or even enlargement of the spleen and liver or subsequent anemia.”
