Malignancy of Unknown Origin (MUO), Lymphoma or Something Else? Demystifying the Diagnosis of Castleman Disease

Castleman Disease (CD) is a rare, devasting disease that few physicians have come across in their daily practice. Patients can experience symptoms of systemic inflammation that can interfere with their daily lives and, more seriously, significant organ damage due to the uncontrolled release of pro-inflammatory cytokines during a cytokine storm. Being able to identify signs of CD is important to allow prompt diagnosis and treatment.
