Title Success of Trametinib in the Treatment of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis With Novel MAPK Pathway Mutations.
Abstract Text Approximately a third of patients with Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) experience recurrence of disease. Genomic analysis has revealed that this condition is often driven by oncogenic mutations in the MAP kinase (MAPK) pathway, and agents that target components of this pathway have been explored as a second-line treatment for LCH. Here, we examine 2 pediatric patients with LCH and confirmed but rarely reported MAPK pathway mutations treated with trametinib, a MAP2K inhibitor approved to treat several cancers with a BRAFV600E mutation. Each patient achieved or maintained complete resolution of disease and remain on the drug with no adverse effects.


  • Case insensitive filtering will display rows if any text in any cell matches the filter term
  • Use simple literal full or partial string matches
  • Separate multiple filter terms with a space. Any order may be used (i. e. a b c and c b a are equivalent )
  • Filtering will only apply to rows that are already loaded on the page. Filtering has no impact on query parameters.
  • Use quotes to match on a longer phrase with spaces (i.e. "mtor c1483f")


  • Generally, the default sort order for tables is set to be first column ascending; however, specific tables may set a different default sort order.
  • Click on any column header arrows to sort by that column
  • Hold down the Shift key and click multiple columns to sort by more than one column. Be sure to set ascending or descending order for a given column before moving on to the next column.
