Castleman’s disease with calcification of the chest wall is very rare, and there have been few reports of such cases to date. A 57-year-old woman was referred to our hospital for a tumor with calcification on her left lateral chest wall, which was detected on chest computed tomography. Findings of her chest magnetic resonance imaging suggested schwannoma or a solitary fibrous tumor, and therefore, we performed surgery for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Pathologically, the tumor with calcification was diagnosed as Castleman’s disease of the hyaline-vascular type. After the surgery, the patient has had no obvious symptoms and continues to undergo regular follow-up examinations.
