MARTINEZ ITURRIAGA, M.T. et al. Cervical Castleman’s disease. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.6, pp.394-398. ISSN 2173-9161.

Castleman´s Disease is characterized by the presence of lymphatic tissue masses. There are two forms the hyaline vascular 91% (unifocal) and the plasmatic 9% (multifocal). We present a 30 year old man with a left laterocervical painless mass. Total resection of the tumour was performed. The histological result was Castleman´s disease hyaline vascular form. Castleman´s disease presents mainly in the lymphatic tissue of the mediastinum. Cervical location is very rare. Periphery metastasis work up must be done to rule out the multifocal form of the disease. Surgical excision is curative for the unifocal form.

Keywords : Castleman´s disease; Cervical mass; Lymphatic tissue.
