Diagnosis of Castleman Disease:

The Critical Role of Pathology

Program Overview

CD is a rare group of heterogeneous lymphoproliferative disorders, including unicentric CD and subtypes of multicentric CD (MCD), many of which have an unknown underlying etiology. Owing to its rarity and unknown etiology, and a historical lack of clinical practice guidelines, pathologists may find the recognition and diagnosis of this disease challenging. This engaging program features expert pathologists who highlight critical information that is needed to identify CD, including a focus on all aspects of histopathology and clinical characteristics needed to make an accurate diagnosis.
