Author information

Department of Radiology, Caritas Medical Centre, Kowloon, Hong Kong.


A case of hyaline vascular type of mesenteric giant lymph node hyperplasia (MGLNH) is presented. 15 previously reported cases were found in the literature with 14 belonging to the plasma cell type and one belonging to the hyaline vascular type. This is contrary to thoracic giant lymph node hyperplasia (TGLNH) where hyaline vascular type predominates. Like TGLNH, the hyaline vascular type of MGLNH produces no systemic symptoms but the plasma cell type is associated with various systemic symptoms and abnormal laboratory findings.
