A 65-year-old female patient was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1995. An abdominal mass was detected by computed tomography and the patient was preoperatively diagnosed with a gastrointestinal stromal tumor. Laparoscopy-assisted surgical resection revealed a mesenteric Castleman's tumor of the hyaline vascular type. Mesenteric Castleman's disease is rare, and there have been only 42 cases reported in the English literature. We herein discuss the clinical findings of these cases.
