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.
