    Castleman Disease and Rosai-Dorfman Disease.
    Semin Diagn Pathol 2018 Jan 2;35(1):44-53. Epub 2017 Dec 2.
    Pathology Service, Hospital Universitario Marques de Valdecilla, Santander, Spain.
    This chapter describes the main features of two different diseases, Castleman Disease (CD) and Rosai-Dorfman Disease (RDD). Castleman disease (CD) is a clinical and histopathologically heterogeneous lymphoproliferative disorder that encompasses at least three distinct entities with some common overlapping morphological features: Hyaline Vascular CD (HVCD), Unicentric Plasma Cell CD and Multicentric CD. The most important feature of HVCD is the presence of abnormal germinal centers with hyaline-vascular transformation, sometimes showing multiple germinal centers within a single reactive lymphoid follicle, this outlining HVCD as a disorder of follicular dendritic cells.

    Multicentric reticulohistiocytosis (MRH) is a rare and debilitating systemic disorder characterized by cutaneous nodules and destructive polyarthritis. Due to its unknown etiology, the treatment of MRH varies with different rates of success, which causes treatment options to be rather independent and empirical. In the present study, a case of a 48‑year‑old woman with a 12‑month history of polyarthralgia and skin nodules was reported. Read More
