sinus histiocytosis a disorder of the lymph nodes in which the distended sinuses are filled by histiocytes, as a result of active multiplication of the littoral cells.

What is a histocyte? A histiocyte is a type of immune cell that eats foreign substances in an effort to protect the body from infection.
