    Summary

    Castlemans disease is a very rare disordercharacterized by benign lymph-node hypertrophy. There aredescribed two forms: the localized form, in which only onelymph node is involved, often pauci-symptomatic, treatedby surgical excision with full recovery without relapse inalmost all cases, and the multicentric or systemic form withgeneral symptoms, polyadenopathy (neck, chest, mediastin,abdomen), organomegaly (liver, spleen) and, with a muchless favorable prognosis. The etiology remains unknown,but some recent studies have suggested that the humanherpesvirus 8 (HHV 8) can be involved, especially in themulticentric forms.

    We present the case of a 60 year-old man who wasadmitted to our hospital for acute urticaria (with an aspectof vasculitic urticaria) and angioedema, started two weeksbefore presentation. At the physical examination weobserved a submandibular round tumor (8 cm in diameter),firm-elastic to palpation, painless, covered by normalepidermis, which occurred simultaneously with urticariaand increased with time. We have treated the urticaria with

    Boala Castleman este o afeciune foarte rar,caracterizat prin hipertrofia benign a ganglionilorlimfatici. Exista dou forme clinice: forma localizat n careeste afectat un singur grup ganglionar, frecvent pauci-simptomatic, tratat prin excizie chirurgical radical,fr recidive n majoritatea cazurilor i formamulticentric, caracterizat prin manifestri sistemice,poliadenopatie (mediastin, regiunea cervical, abdomenetc.), organomegalie (ex: splin, ficat) i care are unprognostic mai puin favorabil dect forma localizat.Etiologia bolii ramne necunoscut; studii recente ausugerat implicarea herpesvirusului uman 8 (HHV-8), nspecial n cazul formelor multicentrice.

    Prezentare de caz

    Un pacient n vrst de 60 ani s-a prezentatpentru o erupie urticarian cu debut acut, avndcaracteristici clinice de vasculit urticarian(leziuni pruriginoase urticariene generalizate,figurate, nsoite de senzaie de arsur, carepersistau n aceeai localizare peste 48 ore, uneleleziuni avnd n centru aspect purpuric fig. 1) iangioedem (fig. 2), aprute n urm cu dousptmni. Pacientul nu urma nici un tratamentmedicamentos i nu avea istoric de alergiemedicamentoas.

    Examenul clinic a evideniat, n afara erupieiurticariene, o formaiune tumoral subman-dibular rotund, cu diametrul de 8 cm, ferm-elastic la palpare, nedureroas, acoperit deepiderm de aspect normal, care a aprut simultancu erupia urticarian i care a crescut progresiv ndimensiuni (fig. 3). Investigaiile uzuale, cum ar fihemoleucograma i profilul biochimic (incluzndtestele funciei hepatice) au fost n limite normale,cu excepia creterii VSH; serologia HIV a fostnegativ. De asemenea, s-au evideniat cretereanivelului complexelor imune circulante ihipocomplementemie. Pacientul a fost tratatpentru vasculita urticarian cu antihistaminice ipentoxifilin, rspunsul fiind favorabil. Ulterior afost ndrumat ctre secia ORL unde tumora a fostexcizat complet.

    Case report

    A 60 year-old man was referred to ourhospital for an urticarial eruption suggestingurticarial vasculitis (generalized pruriticurticarial lesions, accompanied by a burningsensation, that last for more than 48 hours in afixed location, with purpura within the lesions fig. 1) and angioedema (fig. 2), started two weeksago. The patient was on no regular medicationsand no drug allergy was mentioned.

    Physical examination revealed a sub-mandibular round tumor (8 cm in diameter),firm-elastic to palpation, painless, covered bynormal epidermis, which occurred simulta-neously with urticaria and increased with time(fig. 3). Routine investigations such as full bloodcount and biochemical profile (including hepaticfunction tests) were found to be within normalrange, except an elevated ESR; HIV serology wasnegative. Hypocomplementaemia and circu-lating immune complexes were present. Thepatient was treated for the urticarial vasculitiswith antihistamines and pentoxifilin with a goodresponse. The patient was referred to the ENTdepartment where the tumor was completelyexcised. The histological examination of thelesion showed angiofollicular lymphoidhyperplasia the hyaline-vascular form,suggesting the Castlemans disease. Thecomputer tomography/CT examination revealedno widespread lymphadenopathy, so thediagnosis was Castlemans disease, the localizedform. The patient was periodically evaluated; one

    Boala Castleman este o afeciune foarte rar,cu evoluie de obicei benign, de etiologienecunoscut, caracterizat prin hipertrofiaganglionilor limfatici. De-a lungul timpului s-aufolosit numeroi termeni pentru a descrie aceastentitate limfoproliferativ, cum ar fi: hiperplazielimfoid angiofolicular, hiperplazie gigant aganglionilor limfatici, hamartom al ganglionilorlimfatici, hamartom limfoid angiomatos,limforeticulom folicular, limfom gigant benign,hiperplazie angiofolicular a ganglionilorlimfatici mediastinali etc.1,2

    Comment

    Castlemans disease is a very rare, usuallybenign disorder of unknown etiology charac-terized by benign lymph-node hypertrophy.Many terms have been used over the years todescribe this lymphoproliferative disorder,including angiofollicular lymphoid hyperplasia,giant lymph node hyperplasia, lymph nodehamartoma, angiomatous lymphoid hamartoma,follicular lymphoreticuloma, benign giantlymphoma, angiofollicular mediastinal lymphnode hyperplasia.1,2

    The entity was first described in 1954 and1956 by Castleman et al as a benign, localizedenlargement of hyperplastic lymph nodes.3,4 In1970 Flendrig reported that this disorder has twoseparate histologic features;5 based on these

    volum benign, localizat, a ganglionilorlimfatici.3,4 n 1970, Flendrig a comunicat faptulc, din punct de vedere histopatologic, aceastafeciune are dou manifestri distincte;5 ulterior,n 1972, Keller a clasificat boala Castleman ndou variante histopatologice, hialino-vasculari, respectiv, plasmocito-celular.6

    Din punct de vedere clinic, boala se poatemanifesta sub dou forme: localizat sau cuafectare multicentric; forma localizat este ceamai frecvent.

    Aproximativ 90% din cazurile cu boalCastleman localizat sunt de tip hialino-vascular i apar de obicei la tineri. Este afectat unsingur grup ganglionar i de obicei pacienii suntpauci-simptomatici. Forma localizat poateafecta orice parte a corpului care prezint esutlimfatic, cele mai frecvente localizri fiindmediastinul (60%), regiunea cervical (14%),intra-abdominal (retroperitoneal, pancreas,pelvis etc. - 11%), i axilar (4%);7 de asemenea,s-au raportat cazuri de afectare la nivel faringian,parotidian, regiunea bucal, extremiti etc.8,9,10
