Castleman’s disease is the giant lymph node hyperplasia first identified in 1956 by Benjamin Castleman et al. It is a very uncommon lymphoproliferative disorder without a fully known etiology. It is also known as angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia, giant lymph node hyperplasia, lymphoid hamartoma, giant benign lymphoma and follicular lymphoreticuloma. Clinically it has localized and multicentric types while histopathologically it has hyaline, vascular, plasma-cell and mixed types. Thymoma, sarcoidosis, tuberculosis, lymphoma and malign lesions are the medical conditions which are to be primarily considered in the differential diagnosis. The present study presents a case with Castleman’s Disease localized in axilla.
