Abstract

Idiopathic fibrosis and malignant lymphoma were studied with positron emission tomography (PET) using 2-deoxy-2-[F-18]fluoro-D-glucose (F-18DG). Cases of retroperitoneal fibrosis and sclerosing peritonitis showed low F- 18DG uptake with the mass/muscle radioactivity (M/M) ratio 2.0 and 1.9, respectively. A case of para-aortic adenopathy from malignant lymphoma showed high F-18DG uptake with the M/M ratio 9.4. F-18DG PET study may be useful for the differential diagnosis of idiopathic fibrosis and malignant lymphadenopathy.
