Abstract

Castleman’s disease is a rare form of localized lymph node hyperplasia of unknown etiology. The sub-types are; hyaline vascular, plasma cell and mixed variant. Clinical subtypes are localized (unicentric) and multicentric. It is reported in all age groups regardless of gender. Hyaline vascular type, accounts for 90% of all cases, often develops in the neck, mediastinum and pulmonary hilum. Its occurrence in the peritoneal cavity is very rare. We present a case in mesocolon of hyaline type in a 39 year female.
