AbstractCastleman’s disease is an uncommon and poorly understood disorder of atypical lymphoproliferative disorder of unknown etiology atypical. Renal manifestations, such as proteinuria, hematuria, and renal dysfunction, are common in Castleman’s disease; however, a nephrotic syndrome rarely occurs.
We have encountered an unusual case of Castleman’s disease characterized by nephrotic syndrome because of glomerulopathy mimicking membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis.
The diagnoses were confirmed by cervical lymph node and renal biopsy.
