      Benjamin Castleman, M.D., F.C.A.P.-He was an American physician and pathologist best known for the eponymous disease which is named after him, Castleman's disease. He was also one of the authors of the first case series on pulmonary alveolar proteinosis in a 1958 article in the New England Journal of Medicine (Rosen-Castleman-Liebow syndrome is a rarely-used term for that condition). Castleman undertook clinicopathologic investigations of parathyroid disease and wrote several important papers on diseases of the thymus and mediastinum. He authored or co-authored over 100 scholarly papers on a variety of disorders, as well as tumor fascicles published by the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology on neoplasms of the thymus and the parathyroid glands. Castleman was educated at Harvard University (B.A., 1927) and Yale University (M.D., 1931). He worked for many years at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, serving as chief of the division of anatomic pathology there, and he held the rank of Professor in the Harvard Medical School. Dr. Castleman was an editor of the clinicopathological case presentation series in the New England Journal of Medicine. The Benjamin Castleman Award has been given annually since 1982 to the first author of an English-language research article that is considered the most worthy in the field of human pathology. It is administered by the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology. Dr. Castleman died of malignant lymphoma.
