Abstract

An abnormal shadow was detected on the chest radiograph of a 55-year-old man during a medical check up. The chest CT showed a round mass with calcification, 3 cm in size, in the left pulmonary hilum. The tumor size increased slightly during the 5 years of follow-up and the PET scan was positive. Left upper lobectomy was performed due to suspicion of lung cancer and extensive adhesion was demonstrated between the tumor and left pulmonary artery. The histopathological diagnosis was hyaline vascular type of Castleman's disease. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient still remains disease-free 2 years after the operation.
