Abstract.

Lymphomas are a heterogeneous group of diseases,that account for 5–6% of all malignancies and are characterized by variable clinical and radiology manifestations. Abdominal lymphadenopathy is a common clinical situation, which sometimes can be assignificant diagnostic challenge, especially when it is a solitary finding. In the next clinical case, we present the advantages of the hybrid imaging technique (PET/CT) in the patient with unusual and rare primary localization of T-cell lymphoma in retroperitoneal space.

Key words: 18F-FDG PET/CT. LYMPHOMA. RETROPERITONEAL SPACE
