Two infants suffering from histiocytosis X were treated successfully with a topically applied nitrogen mustard. All cutaneous symptoms disappeared completely within 2 weeks in one case while the skin improved significantly in the other. No irritation or dermatitis was experienced from the treatment. The only side-effect noted was hyperpigmentation.
