Castleman’s disease of the bilateral parotid gland: a case report. Objective: Castleman’s disease (CD) is a benign lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by enlarged hyperplastic lymph nodes. We describe a patient who was found to have Castleman’s disease as the cause of a parotid mass.

Methods and results: The mass was the hyaline vascular type. After surgical excision of the largest masses on the right side, the patient was followed up for 6 months. Another mass in the left parotid region also became larger and was excised, with the pathological examination demonstrating Castleman’s disease.

Conclusion: Although rare in the head or neck region, Castleman’s disease should be considered when investigating head-neck diseases.
