Localized Castlemanâ€™s Disease in Retroperitoneum Mimicking Broad Ligament Leiomyoma â€“ a Diagnostic Challenge
AbstractPrimary retroperitoneal tumours pose a diagnostic dilemma and therapeutic challenges because of their location and late detection. Localized Castleman Disease (CD) in retroperitoneal location is a rare occurrence, with incidence of only 4% cases occurring in diverse locations like retroperitoneum. A rare case of unicentric localized Castleman Disease localized in broad ligament is hereby reported which was clinically & radiologically suspected as broad ligament leiomyoma but finally diagnosed as Castlemanâ€™s Disease, hyaline vascular type in a young female posing a diagnostic challenge both for the pathologist and clinician. Definite diagnosis is essential as complete surgical excision in case of unicentric Castlemanâ€™s Disease has good prognosis after resection.
