Castleman Disease

  • Castleman disease

    Definition:
    Castleman disease is a rare disorder that involves an overgrowth (proliferation) of cells in your body's disease-fighting network (lymphatic system). Also known as giant lymph node hyperplasia and angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, Castleman disease can occur in a localized (unicentric) or widespread (multicentric) form.

  • Castleman disease

    Symptoms:
    Fever. Night sweats. Fatigue and weakness. Loss of appetite. Unintended weight loss. Enlarged lymph nodes, usually around the neck, collarbone, underarm and groin areas. Enlarged liver or spleen.

  • Castleman disease

    Statistics:
    On the basis of pathological and virological data, pathophysiology appears to conjugate both proliferation of human herpesvirus (HHV-8) infected plasmablasts and replication of HHV-8. Therefore, recent therapies have targeted the infected cells using chemotherapy or rituximab, an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody or both, and the virus replication by using valganciclovir, a potent antiviral drug usually used against cytomegalovirus.
