This series of bite-sized episodes will take you on the winding journey that patients with idiopathic multicentric Castleman disease (iMCD) often undergo to achieve an accurate diagnosis. Once the condition is finally identified, even the most astute specialists can find themselves challenged by the treatment, management, and monitoring of these patients. Join Drs. Corey Casper and Sudipto Mukherjee as they explain the ups and downs of this rare disease.
