概要 TAFRO syndrome is a systemic inflammatory disorder characterized by thrombocytopenia, anasarca including pleural effusion and ascites, fever, renal insufficiency, and organomegaly including hepatosplenomegaly and lymphadenopathy. Its onset may be acute or sub-acute, but its etiology is undetermined. Although several clinical and pathological characteristics of TAFRO syndrome resemble those of multicentric Castleman disease (MCD), other specific features can differentiate between them. Some TAFRO syndrome patients have been successfully treated with glucocorticoids and/or immunosuppressants, including cyclosporin A, tocilizumab and rituximab, whereas others are refractory to treatment, and eventually succumb to the disease. Early and reliable diagnoses and early treatments with appropriate agents are essential to enhancing patient survival.
