OBJECTIVE According to recent reports, nodal marginal zone lymphoma (MZL) appears to be a distinctive lymphoma entity rather than a more advanced stage of extranodal MZL of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT). We have therefore retrospectively evaluated all patients diagnosed with nodal or extranodal MZL who have been referred to our unit for imaging using (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 21 patients with a diagnosis… CONTINUE READING
