Objective Castleman disease is a rare disorder of lymphoproliferative disorders that is often confused with lymphoma or other solid tumors. Hence, this review sought to look at the diagnostic role of 18F-FDG PET/CT and contrast-enhanced CT in patients with CD. Results These 32 patients were composed of 17 unicentric CD patients and 15 multicentric CD patients. UCD had a greater incidence of female and hyaline vascular subtypes compared to MCD, which was atypical for MCD. In all cases, including moderate uptake in 7 cases and high uptake in 25 cases, there was a lot of enthusiasm for FDG uptake, with moderate uptake in 7 cases and rapid uptake in 25 cases. Combined PET/CT and CECT was more accurate than combined PET/CT or CECT alone. Conclusions Castleman disease is the most common symptom of rapid and homogeneous improvement, despite moderate or high FDG uptake.
