We describe the first case of Takayasu Arteritis (TA) complicated by multicentric hyaline-vascular type of Castleman's disease (CD) which was diagnosed by the biopsy of mediastinal lymphnode 23 years after the diagnosis of TA. CD is classified as a lymphoid disorder of immune regulation characterized by a systemic, unregulated B cell proliferation, and there are some reports about the coincidence of CD and autoimmune diseases. This case has allowed us to gain some insight into a possible relation between the two disorders.
