Histiocytosis Doctors & Other Experts

Histiocytosis Doctors & Other Experts


Why should I choose MSK doctors to treat histiocytosis?

  • Experience. Doctors at MSK care for more adults with histiocytosis than any other hospital in the nation. Our MSK Kids team is very experienced at caring for children with this disease.
  • The right diagnosis. We’re experts in spotting the symptoms of histiocytosis and making an accurate diagnosis. A correct diagnosis is very important to getting the best treatment.
  • New treatments. Our experts played key roles in the research on 2 important histiocytosis medications. This research led to approval of the drugs vemurafenib (Zelboraf®) and cobimetinib (Cotellic®).  

For some people, new histiocytosis treatments aimed at gene mutations improved their symptoms and overall health. MSK assessed some of these treatments during research studies, also known as clinical trials.

  • Research excellence. MSK offers all standard treatments as well as  histiocytosis clinical trials. Our research explores treatments available only at a few hospitals, including MSK.
