ABSTRACT

Castlemanís disease is a rare and complex lymphoproliferative disease with unknown etiology. It can be classified clinically into unicentric or multicentric and  histologically into hyaline vascular or plasmacytic variants. Unicentric Castlemanís disease in breast is rarely reported worldwide. We report a case of a young lady presenting with complaint of solitary right breast lump, for which she underwent excision biopsy and was diagnosed of having unicentric Castlemanís disease of breast, hyaline vascular variant.

 

Keywords: Breast, Castleman Disease, Lymphoproliferative disorders, Neoplasm, Unicentric.
