Abstract
Angiofollicular lymphoid hyperplasia is a
very curious pathologic entity and has received
diverse nomenclatures since its first description
by Castleman') (1954) ; lymph node hyperplasia'),
giant hemolymph node6) , lymph nodal
hamartoma') , giant intrathoracic lymph nodesl
' ) , follicular lymphoreticulomaU ) , angiofollicular
lymphoid hyperplasia7) , angiomatous
lymphoid hamartoma13) , giant lymph node
hyperplasia') , and isolated lymphoid tumor')
Castleman3 ) (1956) originally reported that
it is a localized mediastinal tumor and also
presented the evidence that the condition is
neither neoplastic nor thymic in origin, but
rather a form of chronic nonspecific inflammation.
Since then, cases of occurrence in
extrathoracic sites were documented , 5, 8, 10, 13,
H) and Abell') (1957) and Lattes'O) (1962)
suggested lymphoid harmartomatous nature as
to its histogenesis. But till now, no exact
nature is kl1own, except its benign course
validated by no recurrence of the tumor in
any of the follow-up cases after excision, and
by absence of features diagnostic for malignant
lymphoma histopathologically.
With a review of all lympho-reticular neoplasm
and its allied conditions, we are aware
of some difference in incidence among Koreans,
and such speculations may extend to the
benign non-neoplastic growth including al1giofollicular
lymphoid hyperplasia. In the aspect
of that 110 single proven document on this
growth was found in Korean literature, the
authors present a case of extrathoracic origin
who received unnecessary radical operative
procedure by fundamental lack of clinicans
understanding on this disorder, and showed
peculiar histological characteristics in addition
to the findings summarized by Lattes et al'°)
(1962).
