  • CONCLUSIONS: CD is a very rare cause for development of retroperitoneal mass. It is more frequent in young adults without predilection of sex. It can occur anywhere along the lymphoid chain. Abdominal and retroperitoneal locations usually present with symptoms due to the mass effect on adjacent organs. CD appears as a homogeneously hypoechoic mass on ultrasound and non-specific enhancing homogeneous mass with micro calcifications on computed tomography. Histologically, the hyaline vascular type demonstrates a follicular and inter-follicular capillary proliferation with peri-vascular hyalinization, with expansion of the mantle zones by a mixed inflammatory infiltrate of numerous small lymphocytes and plasma cells. The standard therapy of localized form is en bloc surgical excision as performed in our case.Unicentric CD in the peripancreatic region is difficult to differentiate from pancreatic neoplasm preoperatively. However, preoperative biopsy in cases of high clinical suspicion can help in avoiding extensive surgery for this benign disease.
