Click 40 year old male patient with unicentric Castleman's disease. Axial post contrast CT images of the abdomen showing a well defined soft tissue density lesion with intense inhomogeneous enhancement noted in relation to right renal hilum in the retroperitoneal region, displacing right renal vessels anteriorly with multiple enlarged lymphnodes in pre and para-aortic region. Findings were suggestive of paraganglioma (more likely) than a lymphnodal mass. (64 slice thickness MDCT SCAN with 1mm abdominal cuts, 250 mAs and 120 kVp with Optiscan 120ml as contrast agent).

Coronal post contrast CT images of the abdomen showing a well defined soft tissue density lesion with intense inhomogeneous enhancement noted in relation to right renal hilum in the retroperitoneal region, displacing right renal vessels anteriorly with multiple enlarged lymphnodes in pre and para-aortic region. Findings were suggestive of paraganglioma (more likely) than a lymphnodal mass. (64 slice thickness MDCT SCAN with 1mm abdominal cuts, 250 mAs and 120 kVp with Optiscan 120ml as contrast agent).

Click 40 year old male patient with unicentric Castleman's disease. Axial thoracic post contrast CT images showing few enlarged lymphnodes in thorax, which do not show the same intense enhancement as the lesion seen on the abdominal CT. There is no evidence of any abnormalities in other organs. (64 slice thickness MDCT SCAN with 1mm abdominal cuts, 250 mAs and 120 kVp with Optiscan 120ml as contrast agent).
