Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors present the clinical case of a 61-year-old patient with Hand-Schüller-Christian disease associated with multisystemic involvement. The onset of such puzzling symptoms and the extremely rarity of this disease in a patient of such advanced age resulted in a delayed diagnosis and subsequently delayed treatment of the patient.
