Abstract

Castleman’s disease is an uncommon lymphoproliferative disorder. Amongst known associations with Castleman’s disease, myasthenia gravis is very rare and only four cases have been reported in the literature. We report a patient with Castleman’s disease with myasthenia gravis who successfully underwent thymectomy for control of his symptoms.
