Article Title: F-18 FDG uptake in subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma
Abstract: A 41-year-old male presented to an outside institution complaining of a lump under the skin of his right abdomen. CT scan reported ill-defined densities with streaky inflammatory changes in the anterior abdominal wall. Excisional biopsy of the subcutaneous adipose tissues of the right anterior abdominal wall was consistent with subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma. Flow cytometry demonstrated CD3 and CD8 population. On immunohistochemistry, most lymphoid cells were positive for CD3, CD45RO, CD5, and CD8 and negative for CD10, CD43, CD4, CD20, and CD56. The MIB-1 proliferative index was 30%. Bone marrow biopsy revealed no evidence of lymphomatous involvement. © 2008 by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
