Castleman disease in childhood report on a rare case

, : Castleman disease in childhood report on a rare case. Chirurgie Pediatrique 29(5): 269-272

A case of abdominal pseudo-tumor of Castleman disease is reported in a nine year-old boy. The patient is well without evidence of recurrence three years following resection. Castleman's disease is a benign disorder of lymph nodes that occurs rarely in children. Since the first description by Castleman in 1954, 286 other cases have been published and we could find only four cases in the 10 year and younger age group in the literature and only one case in the same group with anemia, hypergammaglobulinemia fever and weight loss. The management requires surgical resection of the enlarged nodes both for diagnosis and therapy, since the enlarged nodes can mimic malignant tumors of the lymphoid system. After surgical excision no recurrences have been reported.
