ABSTRACT
Primary lymphoma of the bone is a rare clinical presentation constituting to <1% of all lymphomas. The long bones are usually involved. Combined treatment with chemotherapy and radiation offers long-term survival. The authors present the role of 18 fluoride-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computerized tomography in initial staging and response assessment in a case of primary diffuse large B cell lymphoma of the tibia.

Figure 1: Pretreatment 18 fluoride-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) showing intense metabolically active soft tissue lesion noted involving the proximal part of right tibia (coronal PET (a), fused coronal PET CT (b), sagittal PET (d), sagittal fused PET CT (e) and maximum intensity projection (MIP) lower limbs (f)). MIP of the whole body FDG PET (c) showing no abnormal lymph nodes elsewhere in the body

Mentions: A 53-year-old-male patient who presented with pain and swelling of the right lower limb was evaluated. A biopsy from the swelling revealed DLBCL. He was referred to our center for a whole body 18F-FDG PET-CT for initial staging. Pretreatment 18F-FDG PET-CT of the thigh and leg showed intense metabolic activity in a large soft tissue mass arising from the proximal part of right tibia [Figure 1]. No abnormal metabolic activity was noted in the rest of the body.
