Juvenile xanthogranulomatosis (JXG) represents a subset of non-Langerhan cell histiocytosis that typically manifests in younger children with skin lesions. Unresectable central nervous system (CNS) disease is difficult to treat. We describe the case of a 13-year-old successfully treated with adjuvant radiation therapy for symptomatic intracranial and leptomeningeal JXG. An extensive literature review was performed to identify all previous CNS JXG cases utilizing radiation, of which six of eight total patients demonstrated temporary or long-term improvement of neurologic disease. This suggests that radiation should be considered in cases unresponsive to conventional treatment options.
