Focal Castleman disease of the lung

MRI findings

      Abstract

      Castleman disease is an uncommon benign disorder mainly affecting mediastinal lymph nodes and rarely visceral organs. The most typical structural finding is hypervascularity which can be well demonstrated both by CT and MRI. We report MR findings of an unusual case of solitary parenchymal lung involvement.
