Castleman disease in a child with short stature.
Hanada T, et al.
Pediatr Int. 2012 Oct;54(5):720-4.
We report a 14-year-old boy with Castleman disease in this article. He complained of short stature, and his body height was 133.8 cm (<3rd percentile; z score -4.5). There was marked delay in the appearance of secondary sexual characteristics. He was found to have a remittent fever and a lower mid-abdominal tumor. Blood test revealed microcytic hypochromic anemia, thrombocytosis, polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia, hyperfibrinogenemia, and elevated erythrocyte sedimentation rate. The serum IL-6 and C-reactive protein levels were increased. The mass was found to be mixed hyaline vascular and plasma cell type of Castleman disease through a pathological examination. Lymph nodes affected by Castleman disease cause overproduction of IL-6. It decreases IGF-1, IGFBP-3 and serum testosterone levels. As a result of tumorectomy, his short stature and delay in the development of secondary sexual characteristics were improved.
