dendritic cell sarcoma presenting as a neck mass

S. Hassan1, Y. Suhaimi2, A. Baharudin3

ABSTRACT

Castlemanís disease is a condition which usually occurs in the mediasternum. Very few cases have been reported to present as a neck swelling. Castlemanís 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 Castlemanís disease with associated follicular dendritic sarcoma.

KEY WORDS: Castlemanís disease, Follicular dendritic sarcoma, Neck swelling.
