Satisfactory Essays

For DIscussion Topic 2, I chose Castleman’s Disease, which is a lymphatic disease mostly because of it’s unique name. Castleman’s disease is easily misdiagnosed because it lacks any distinct features. There are two types of the disease, localized hyaline vascular and multicentric plasma-cell. Approximately 90% of all cases are hyaline vascular. Both types usually present through a systemic inflammatory response. The most common location of this disease is the thorax and neck areas and are more prevalent in males between 30-50 years of age. However,the three patients on which this study is based are women. All three women had localized hyaline vascular type with masses to their neck regions two were removed successfully with no recurring symptoms
