Abstract

A 22-year-old woman with Hodgkin lymphoma underwent a staging 18F-FDG PET/CT scan, which showed an intense uptake in the right proximal femur, in addition to FDG-avid mediastinal and cervical lymph nodes. The patient thus was diagnosed with stage IV lymphoma with bone marrow involvement. Postchemotherapy restaging scan showed complete resolution of nodal uptake but persistent activity in the right femur. Radiography and biopsy confirmed liposclerosing myxofibrous tumor.
