[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Castleman's disease is a condition which usually occurs in the mediasternum. Very few cases have been reported to present as a neck swelling. Castleman's disease is rarely associated with follicular dendritic sarcoma. We report a case of 65 years old male with painless and slowly progressive right neck swelling who was initially suspected to be schwannoma but proved to be a Castleman's disease with associated follicular dendritic sarcoma.
