Unusual computed tomography appearance of Castleman disease

Australas Radiol. 1997 May;41(2):193-5. doi: 10.1111/j.1440-1673.1997.tb00629.x.


A case is presented here of Castleman disease in an uncommon location. Ultrasonography demonstrated a large hypoechoic mass with multiple vascular channels. On computed tomography, the lesions with a nodular contour were located lateral to the carotid sheath on the right side, and demonstrated a variegated enhancement pattern.
