A rare cause of lymph node swelling, fever and marked hyperhydration: Unicentric Castleman Disease (UCD)

Janina Pasierski

abstract In patients with lymphadenopathy and further constitutional symptoms like fever and fatigue, fluid accumulation, anemia and thrombocytopenia UCD as a potential diagnosis should be taken into account and – instead of a fine needle aspirate – an excision of the lymph node should be performed. Our case demonstrates the importance of early histologic confirmation in cases of unclear lymphadenopathy to avoid recurrent radiation exposure from CT examinations.
