Abstract

Rosai-Dorfman disease is rare and typically presents with cervical lymphadenopathy. The disease is generally indolent and self-limited, but it carries a poor or fatal prognosis when it is advanced or when it involves and compresses vital structures. We herein report a rare case of Rosai-Dorfman disease affecting only the mediastinal-hilar region in a 66-year-old woman.
