INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary Langerhans-cell Histiocytosis (PLCH) is a diffuse lung disease usually occurring in cigarette smokers. While corticosteroids and chemotherapy may be indicated to treat nodular PLCH, their risk to benefit ratio and impact on disease progression are not well defined. We present two cases of nodular PLCH that resolved with smoking cessation alone, without the use of any pharmacological therapy.
