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:
    Five multicentric Castleman's disease and two solitary Castleman's disease biopsies were positive for HHV-8. HHV-8 was identified in approximately 10% of intranodal B lymphocytes, in endothelial cells, and in subcapsular spindle cell proliferations. The copy number of HHV-8 was low at 10–50 copies/1000 cells. The highest copy number was in subcapsular spindle cells. There was no correlation between vascularity score and HHV-8 status.
