We present one observation of the Rosai-Dorfman and Destombes disease (RDDD), particularly under its revealing form and by its favorable evolution under corticosteroid therapy. It was a patient 29 years old, who presented multiple cervical and abdominal adenopathy.  All operating in the alteration of the general condition and fever. The diagnosis is based on histological evidences after ganglionic biopsy which showed a sinus lymphohsitiocytosis. The evolution has been favorable under corticoid treatment. The Rosai-Dorfman and Destombes disease is a rare benign affection, thus difficult to make diagnosis.
