Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia is also known as Castleman's disease which is a disorder that affects lymph nodes and its related tissues. AGH is a lymphoproliferative disorder whose etiology is unknown. Involvement of virus is suspected in causation of Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia. Abnormal functioning of immune system is also found in some of the cases and this disorder either affects only a single set of lymph nodes or generalized lymph nodes of the body. In this article we will be learning about the clinical presentation, causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis and management of the disorder by herbal remedies offered by Planet Ayurveda.

Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia


AGH is also known by many other names like Giant lymph node hyperplasia, Castleman's disease, Angiofollicular lymph hyperplasia, out of which the Castleman's disease is the most common name. It is a rare disorder that targets the lymph nodes and related tissues. AGH is mainly of two types, Multicentric AGH and Unicentric AGH. Both of them affect a person in a very different manner. In Unicentric AGH the single side or set of the lymph nodes get affected and it does not spread in whole body. Abdominal or chest lymph nodes are most commonly affected in this. Lymph nodes affected by AGH gets larger than the usual and start to press into other surrounding tissues or organs that result in signs and symptoms. Like in case the lymph nodes are of abdomen or chest area than the feeling of discomfort arises in abdomen or chest and there can be seen later difficulty in breathing. When the lymph nodes of neck, armpit or groin region are affected and become larger than they can be felt easily in a local examination. In this case the conservative mode of treatment suggests for surgical removal of lymph nodes that can bring many more adverse effects along with it. The exact cause behind the AGH is not known yet however activity of certain virus is reported in many studies, but that is also not confirmed. There is no family history found in this disorder and it occurs sporadically.


Signs and symptoms may vary from person to person affected by Angiofollicular ganglionic hyperplasia. However there are certain sets of symptoms that can be seen in a patient affected by it:

  • Pain in abdomen
  • Decreased hemoglobin or anemia
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Elevated Erythrocyte sedimentation rate
  • Weakness and tiredness


The exact cause lying behind the AGH is not known yet or poorly known. However some studies suggests that there is a substance produced by lymph nodes in case of infections to coordinate with immune system that is known as Interleukin-6. There occurs increased production of this substance in lymph nodes that eventually leads to overgrowth of the lymph nodes and hence producing the signs and symptoms. Certain researches also found out a link with viral activity of human herpes virus type 8.


Diagnosis of the AGH is made by medical history, physical examination, and certain tests like CT scan, MRI and ultrasound. Physical examination reveals enlarge and palpable lymph nodes due to which doctor suspect the disease and further diagnostic tests confirm the diagnosis.


Treatment of AGH depends upon various factors like type of the disease, unicentric or muticentric. In unicentric type the surgery is recommended to remove the localized enlarged lymph nodes. In multicentric type the line of treatment is to treat the underlying infection be it herpes or HIV. Other immunosuppressing drugs are also given. These medications can cause many side effects.
