Abstract

Castleman Disease is a lymphoid disorder characterized by the presence of an enlarged or abnormal lymph node/lymphatic tissue. The disease is classified into unicentric or multicentric variants. The unicentric form is a benign disorder that is usually asymptomatic and consists of a single lymphoid mass that is predominantly located in the mediastinum, but can also rarely develop in the neck or abdomen. The multicentric type involves more than one lymphatic station and is related to the presence of type B symptoms (fevers, night sweats and weight loss), HIV/HHV8 infection and increased serum IL-6 levels. We present the case of an unusual pelvic intraperitoneal manifestation of Castleman Disease in a 52-year-old caucasian woman who showed clinical, radiological, histological and laboratory findings common to both Unicentric and Multicentric Castleman Disease.
