Authors have stated that solitary splenic lymphoma shows diffuse red pulp infiltration and enlargement without mass formation [1]. It cannot be pointed out by plain computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasounography (US) or Gallium-67 citrate alone [1, 4-6]. There are few data available in the literature on fluorine-18-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose… CONTINUE READING
