Diagnosis and treatment of Castleman disease


Program Overview

This activity will cover the nuances of diagnosis and treatment of a rare disease known as Castleman disease as well as the important part that oncology nurses play in the day-to-day care of these patients. The activity will describe the various types of Castleman disease as well as what is known about the diagnosis and treatment of the condition. It will also provide a look at what the Castleman disease patients may go through from diagnosis to treatment and follow up.
