Abstract

Castlemans disease(CD) is a heterogeneous group of lymphoproliferative disorders of uncertain cause presenting with lymphadenopathy. It is histologically and prognostically distinct from malignant lymph-node hyperplasia. It was first described in a group of patientswith benign localised hyperplastic lymph-nodes in 1956 by Castleman et al. We report a case of a 70 year old gentleman who was clinically suspected to have lymphoma , but later histologically confirmed to have Castlemans disease.
