The posterior chest wall is an exceedingly rare location for the Castleman's Disease, hyaline vascular type. It is likely that this mass arose from one of the posterior intercostal lymph nodes. Two cases were reported, at one lateral intercostal space, mimicking a chest wall tumor, and arising from an intercostal lymph node. Our patient was a 15 year-old female, who admitted to hospital with oral erosive lichen planus. And than intrathoracic pathology was found in chest radiography. Histologically, the tumor was located right posterior chest wall was hyaline- vascular type of castleman's disease. After the tumour was totally resected, oral lesion of the patient was recovered partially. The rare association of oral erosive lichen planus and Castleman's disease is presented.
