BANNURA C, GUILLERMO; SOTO C, DANIEL  y  CORNEJO C, VALERIA. Castleman disease of the rectum: Report of one case. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2007, vol.59, n.6, pp. 463-466. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-40262007000600014.

Catleman disease usually presents as mediastinal lymph nodes and gastrointestinal involvement is exceptional. We report a 49 years old female with a vascularized mass located in the sigmoid colon. The mass was excised and the pathological study showed a Castleman disease, hyaline vascular variety. The patient is free of symptoms after two years of follow up. This variety of Castleman disease usually presents as solitary asymptomatic masses and if it is completely excised, the prognosis is good

Palabras llave : Castleman disease; rectum; hyaline-vascular variety.
