Abstract

Castleman's disease is a rare disorder that's characterized by the proliferation of lymphoid tissue. It is very rare to find this disease arising from the sigmoid mesocolon. We report here on a case of localized Castleman's disease involving the sigmoid mesocolon, and we discuss the findings of the gray-scale ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging.
