BACKGROUND: The deep location, narrow operative space and proximity to major vessels make minimally invasive resection of nonadrenal retroperitoneal tumors (NTRs) challenging and rarely reported. This study aimed to evaluate the safety and feasibility of robotic resection of benign nonadrenal retroperitoneal tumors. METHODS: The demographics and perioperative outcomes of a consecutive series of patients who underwent robotic NTR resection between January 1, 2015, and August 30, 2017, were analyzed...

An 84-year-old Japanese man was admitted due to anasarca, thrombocytopenia, systemic inflammation, and progressive renal insufficiency, resistant to diuretics, glucocorticoid therapy and plasma exchange. Renal biopsy showed diffuse endocapillary proliferation and mesangiolysis without any immune deposits. Tocilizumab suppressed systemic inflammation, resulting in improvement of anasarca and renal dysfunction, but thrombocytopenia persisted and platelet-associated IgG antibody was elevated. Though romiplostim was effective for thrombocytopenia, the patient died of aspiration pneumonia after cerebral hemorrhage...

A 38-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for rheumatologic manifestations (migrant arthritis and tenosynovitis), without psoriasis or family history of psoriasis, gastroenteric manifestations, or recent genitourinary infections. The instrumental and laboratory tests have suggested a diagnosis of undifferentiated seronegative HLA-B27-positive spondyloarthritis with predominantly peripheral involvement. The symptoms were very severe and resistant to anti-inflammatory drugs and steroids. She had a history of hyaline-vascular unicentric Castleman's disease (HBV, HIV, and HHV-8 negative) treated with surgery resection...

Multicentric Castleman disease (MCD) is a rare nonmalignant lymphoproliferative disorder presenting systemic symptoms such as fever, night sweats, fatigue, anemia, effusions, and multifocal lymphadenopathy. The etiology of MCD has not been clarified to date. The coexistence of MCD with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) has been rarely reported. Although the pathogenesis remains unclear, this association probably reflects an incidental and fortuitous finding rather than the alteration of a common pluripotent stem cell precursor...

Castleman disease (CD) is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology that may occur anywhere in the lymphatic system. Imaging plays an important role in detecting and staging this disease. Positron Emission Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Imaging (PET/MRI) combines the metabolic information derived from nuclear medical imaging with the high soft tissue resolution from MRI. We review the features of CD in standard diagnostic imaging, analyze the specific imaging findings of CD in FDG-PET/MRI and discuss a potential benefit of PET/MRI based on the case of a 15-year-old female patient with retroperitoneal CD...

Pediatric Castleman disease (CD) is an uncommon and poorly understood disorder of the lymph nodes. Renal failure has not been described in pediatric multicentric CD (MCD). We report four cases, who presented with polyadenopathy, organomegaly, edema and fluid accumulations, high blood pressure, and acute renal failure. In all cases, renal biopsy confirmed diffuse thrombotic microangiopathy. Definitive diagnosis of MCD was made by a biopsy of an affected lymph node located by computer tomography before initiation of corticosteroid therapy...

Multicentric Castleman's disease (MCD) is a rare kind of lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by systemic problems such as frequent fever, fatigue and weight loss with angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia. However, unlike unicentric Castleman's disease (UCD) with long-time survival by surgery and local radiotherapy, MCD remains poor prognosis due to no well-defined optimal treatment strategies and high risk of developing malignances especially lymphoma. We reported a case of MCD who received chemotherapy by ECHOP with unsatisfactory outcome and then oral administration with thalidomide combined with prednisone without disease progression after therapy...

There is a broad range of inflammatory, pseudotumoral, and benign lesions that may masquerade as pancreatic malignancies, often representing a challenge to the radiologist. Unawareness of these entities can lead to inadequate differential diagnoses or misdiagnosis, with important prognostic and therapeutic consequences. The purpose of this article is to revisit a spectrum of lesions, varying from common to exceedingly rare nonmalignant, that may mimic malignant pancreatic neoplasms on imaging, identifying relevant features that may contribute to reaching the correct diagnosis...

Classic Hodgkin lymphoma (CHL) has four subtypes. Different morphologic variations can be seen in lymph nodes involved by CHL. Primary interfollicular (IF) involvement is not considered a separate subtype but an unusual diagnostically challenging morphologic variant. Our aim was to study the prevalence of IF growth pattern and coexistence of other morphologic variants in lymph nodes involved by CHL, to investigate the diagnostic challenges and clinical importance of this growth pattern, and to find helpful histologic clues in cases with subtle morphologic features to help avoid misinterpretation and missed diagnosis...

A 36-year-old woman suffering from oral ulcerations, skin rash, and dyspnea was suspected of having paraneoplastic pemphigus. An F-FDG PET/CT was performed to detect the underlying neoplasms and revealed an F-FDG-avid mass in the lower right retroperitoneum. The mucocutaneous lesions and dyspnea were relieved after the tumor excision, and the pathology indicated Castleman disease.

RATIONALE: Castleman disease is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder which etiology is unknown. It is divided into 2 subtypes: the plasma cell variant and the hyaline vascular variant. The most common site is the hilum of the lungs and mediastinum. Castleman disease is often ignored by clinicians because of not frequently encountering in clinical and the lower uptake of F-FDG. Here, we report a case of hepatocellular carcinoma accompanied by Castleman disease in the hilum of the liver, which was misdiagnosed as the lymph node metastasis in F-FDG PET/CT imaging...

Castleman's disease (CD) is a lymphoproliferative abnormality, also referred to as giant lymph node hyperplasia or follicular lymphoid hyperplasia. The occurrence of CD in the liver is rare. Radiological diagnosis of hepatic CD by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) remains difficult. On imaging, hepatic CD is often expressed as a single, well-defined soft tissue lesion, with rare cystic degeneration and focal necrosis. The CD lesions appear as hypervascular with abundant cell proliferation on CT and MRI...

Castleman's disease (CD) is an uncommon benign lymphoproliferative disorder which most commonly involves the mediastinum but rarely affects the pleura. We report a case of unicentric CD that presents as a pleural mass in a 45-year-old man, which was subsequently resected followed by an unexpected diagnosis on histologic examination. Although rare, CD should be included in the differential diagnosis of well-enhancing pleural mass.

IgG4-related disease is a heterogeneous immune-mediated fibroinflammatory condition that can affect every single organ. This disease is more prevalent in the elderly (the mean age of patients is above 60 years) and the prevalence rate is estimated to be over 4.6 per 100,000 population. Before making a diagnosis, the exclusion of malignancies, lymphoma, anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis, multicentric Castleman disease, and other mimickers is crucial for appropriate treatment. Broad management guidelines have been published emphasizing the need for prompt treatment and the use of glucocorticoids as first-line drug therapy for induction of remission...

A 67-year-old patient presented for persistent cough. Computed tomography showed right lower lung opacity associated with mediastinal adenopathy. On suspicion of metastatic pulmonary neoplasm, the patient was submitted to right lower lobectomy with lymphadenectomy. Postoperative histopathology led to the diagnosis of multicentric Castleman's disease.

Patients with both anti-glomerular basement membrane (anti-GBM) disease and Castleman disease have been rarely reported. In this study, we report 3 patients with this combination. They had immunologic features similar to patients with classic anti-GBM disease. Sera from the 3 patients recognized the noncollagenous (NC) domain of the α3 chain of type IV collagen (α3(IV)NC1) and its 2 major epitopes, EA and EB. All 4 immunogloblin G (IgG) subclasses against α3(IV)NC1 were detectable, with predominance of IgG1...

Tocilizumab (TCZ) is the first humanized anti-interleukin-6 (IL-6) receptor monoclonal antibody approved for the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Castleman's disease, polyarticular and systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and, most recently, giant cell arteritis as well as for the treatment of chimeric antigen receptor T cell therapy-induced cytokine release syndrome. The global clinical development program for TCZ provides a wealth of clinical data on intravenous TCZ, and more recent studies in patients with RA have provided evidence characterizing the role of intravenous TCZ as monotherapy in early disease and led to the introduction of a subcutaneous formulation of TCZ...

Castleman disease (CD) is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder subclassified as unicentric CD (UCD) or multicentric CD (MCD) based on clinical features and the distribution of enlarged lymph nodes with characteristic histopathology. MCD can be further subtyped based on human herpes virus 8 (HHV8) infection into HHV8-associated MCD, HHV8- /idiopathic MCD (iMCD), and polyneuropathy, organomegaly, endocrinopathy, monoclonal gammopathy, and skin change (POEMS)-associated MCD. In a subset of cases of UCD, an associated follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) may be seen...
