Langerhans cells are identified by the expression of langerin. We detected this molecule in cutaneous and mucosal lesions in paracoccidioidomycosis, an important infection in Latin America. Langerin+ cells were scarcely distributed, with short dendrites in epidermis and epithelium and were frequent in the dermis and corium, in the inflammatory infiltrate and granulomas. Mucosal lesions presented a higher expression of langerin in lesions with loose granulomas. For the first time we presented the expression of langerin in paracoccidioidomycosis. Positive cells in dermis and corium could represent migrating Langerhans cells or a new subset of langerin+ cells with a role in paracoccidioidomycosis.
