Castleman’s Disease Symptoms, Causes and Treatment News

What is Castleman’s Disease? (Definition)

(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)

According to the Myeloma Institute, Castleman disease (CD) is a rare disease of lymph nodes and related tissues that results from the overgrowth of the cells located in the lymphatic system of the body. Although Castleman Disease is not considered a cancer, it can develop into lymphoma. There are two main types of Castleman Disease: Unicentric, which is localized and affects only a single lymph node region, and Multicentric, which is widespread and affects multiple lymph nodes and lymphatic tissues and which can severely weaken the immune system. Multicentric Castleman Disease can be further classified as either HHH-8 -positive or HHV-8-negative.
