The International Castleman's Disease Organization (ICDO) is a voluntary organization whose mission is to provide research information, clinical points of contact, and cancer treatment facilities to patients of Castleman's disease and the patients' families. Castleman's disease is characterized by a single, solid growth within lymphatic tissue in the chest, stomach, or neck. Growths may also occur in other lymphatic tissue throughout the body. Usually the growths represent abnormal enlargement of the lymph nodes (lymphoid hamartoma) normally found in these areas. There are three types of Castleman's disease: hyaline-vascular type; plasma cell type; and a third type that affects more than one area of the body (generalized or multicentric Castleman's) has been also been identified.
