Article information

Se presenta el caso de una enfermedad de Castleman en una mujer de 46 años, asintomática, con un nódulo pulmonar solitario. En la toracotomía el nódulo estaba situado junto al hilio pero intraparenquimatoso, bien delimitado, pero no encapsulado y desplazando las estructuras broncovasculares vecinas.

Los hechos más relevantes que justifican esta presentación son la èxtraordinaria rareza en su forma de presentación como nódulo solitario y su origen en el pulmón.

An asymptomatic 46-year-old female had Castleman's disease presenting as solitary lung nodule. During thoracotomy it was found that the nodule was next to the hilus but in an intraparenchymal situation. It was well limited but not encapsulated, and it displaced the neighboring structures.

The most relevant facts which justify this report are the extreme rarity of the presentation as pulmonary nodule and the pulmonary origin of the disease.
