Dr. Stephen Humphrey Receives MCWAH Research Award
Stephen Humphrey, MD, was the recipient of a 2015 MCWAH Research Award for the journal article, “The natural history of skin-limited Langerhans cell histiocytosis: a single institution study”, written with Dr. Matthew Ehrhardt and his research mentor, Dr. Sheila Galbraith.
This was a retrospective study examining pediatric patients diagnosed with cutaneous Langerhans cell histiocytosis. Previously it had been described that cutaneous Langerhans cell histiocytosis often progresses to systemic disease. However, from this small study, the majority of patients had complete resolution of their skin disease without systemic disease.
