NIH Rare Diseases:44 Castleman’s disease is a lymphoproliferative disorder affecting the lymph nodes and related tissues. while the cause of castleman's disease is unknown, many doctors suspect a virus is involved. problems with the way an individual's immune system functions may also contribute to the development of the condition. there are 2 main forms of castleman's disease: localized (discussed here) and multicentric. they affect people very differently. localized or unicentric castleman's disease only affects a single set of lymph nodes and is not widespread. the lymph nodes that are more commonly affected are in the chest and abdomen. castleman’s disease causes the lymph nodes to get larger. the enlarged lymph nodes press on other organs and tissues inside the chest or abdomen, causing discomfort or difficulty breathing. sometimes the enlarged lymph nodes are in places such as the neck, groin, or armpit and can be easily felt. people with localized castleman's disease are often cured when the lymph node is removed with surgery. chemotherapy and radiation may also be used. last updated: 4/25/2012

MalaCards: Castleman's Disease, also known as angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia, is related to kaposi's sarcoma and pancreatitis. An important gene associated with Castleman's Disease is IL6 (interleukin 6 (interferon, beta 2)), and among its related pathways are IL-6 Signaling Pathway and IL-17 Family Signaling Pathways. The compounds turpentine and iron sucrose have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include lymph node, b cells and lung, and related mouse phenotypes are hematopoietic system and immune system.
