Castleman's disease (CD) or giant lymph node hyperplasia is a rare disorder that can be unicentric or multicentric. Multicentric Castleman's disease (MCD) is manifested by generalized lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, polyclonal hypergammaglobulinemia, hematological abnormality, and constitutional symptoms. Human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) infection is present in nearly 100% MCD associated with HIV-1 infection, but in about 50% of cases of HIV negative. Herein, we report a 77-year-old man with systemic involvement and skin lesions on the anterior aspect of both legs in the previous site of saphenous vein angioplasty. Co-existence of MCD with Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) led us to present this rare case.
