Abstract

The authors report a case of Castleman's disease localised to the uterus. The treatment was surgical removal of the lesion with conservation of the uterus. Though in localised forms the prognosis is always favourable, multicentered lesions can suggest lymphoma. In our case that we report the anatomo-pathological appearances were not characteristic and this has led the authors to think of a differential diagnosis such as an inflammatory pseudo-tumour of the uterus of which only two cases have been previously reported.
