The purpose of this multi-center research study is to observe and evaluate the outcomes of patients who have eosinophilic granuloma of the skull, a type of bone tumor, whose condition is managed with an initial protocol of observation compared to those who underwent surgical treatment. Data collected will help researchers to determine whether surgery improves results compared to watchful observation alone.
This study is accepting patients of both genders, through age 21, who have eosinophilic granuloma of the skull. Patients who are being treated with a protocol of observation as well as those who underwent surgery for their condition will be included.
Males and Females: Through age 21
No experimental treatments are required for this study. Researchers will collect and review medical record information for each study participant, including demographic information, as well as information related to the diagnosis and treatment of eosinophilic granuloma.
Visits: None beyond normal clinical care
Duration: Not applicable
