Abstract

We report a case of Erdheim Chester disease (ECD) with a 25-year history following initial presentation with diabetes insipidus and brainstem involvement. The exceptionally long history is particularly notable given that ECD is a life-threatening disorder and there is a recognised association between CNS involvement and poor outcome. The case is a timely reminder of the presenting features of the condition given the emergence of potential new treatment options.
