Abstract Congenital presentations of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) are exceedingly rare and concurrent placental parenchymal involvement has not been definitively documented in the literature. We present two cases of congenital MS-LCH with placental involvement resembling chronic villitis. Placental examination may provide the initial diagnostic evidence of LCH and may significantly influence patient management and outcome; however, the prognostic implications remain unclear. In a clinical context suspicious for congenital LCH, the observation of chronic villitis should prompt consideration of placental involvement by LCH.
