The case of a 21-yr-old woman admitted with a two-week history of icterus, fever, multiple peripheral lymphadenopathy and pruritic eruption is presented. A full evaluation including computed tomography, endoscopic retrograde cholangiography, liver, skin and lymph node biopsies and biochemical tests confirmed the diagnosis of multicentric Castleman's disease (angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia). All symptoms improved within four weeks of commencing prednisone therapy. Castleman's disease should be considered in the differental daignosis of cholestatic hepatitis and bullous pemphigoid.
