Cardiac tamponade secondary to giant lymph node hyperplasia (Castleman's disease)


:A unique association of giant lymph node hyperplasia (Castleman's disease) and cardiac tamponade is presented. Although pleural effusions have been previously described with Castleman's disease, the authors believe this to be the first report of pericardial effusion and tamponade with this entity. The development of effusions may be due to an inflammatory syndrome sometimes seen with the plasma cell variant of this disease.
