INTRODUCTION: Castleman’s disease is a rare lymphoproliferative disorder associated with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Human Herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8). It can be unicentric or multicentric, with the latter portending a worse prognosis. HIV patients with rapidly progressing multicentric disease can die within weeks of diagnosis due to infection, disease progression, or associated malignancies. Definitive diagnosis is also often delayed due to the rarity of the disease and the vague, non-specific symptoms that manifest. Here we present an AIDS patient with multicentric Castleman’s disease.
