Thymic hyperplasia following chemotherapy in adults with lymphoma: (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography findings and correlation with T cell repopulation.

Abstract

Thymic hyperplasia (TH) after chemotherapy is an infrequent phenomenon in adults. This study analyzed the incidence and metabolic activity of TH on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in this population. By reviewing 471 PET/CT recordings of 211 adults with lymphoma, increased FDG uptake within an… (More)
