Low power photomicrograph shows many large, pale-staining, fluffy histiocytes throughout the entire specimen and speckled thoughout the mid-portion are the high profile, brightly stained eosinophils with bi-lobed nuclei. This picture is diagnostic for eosinophilic granuloma. The more appropriate treatment for this case would have been a simple curettage of the lesion that would have then gone on to spontaneous healing without further event.
