Abstract

Castleman's disease is uncommon lymphoproliferative disorder as giant lymph node hyperplasia and angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia. Multicentric variant of Castleman's disease, plasma cell type has been described that has more generalized lymph node involvement as well as involvement of other organ systems than localized type. Multicentric plasma cell type is frequently accompanied by systemic manifestations, such as weight loss lowgrade fever and weakness. But the reported cases of pulmonary parenchymal involvement are rare and have almost consisted of hyalinized granuloma adjacent to a bronchus. We report a patient with Castleman's disease of the lung, pathologically proven interstitial pulmonary involvement.
