AVARIA P, Pablo et al. MUSCLE INFILTRATION BY NON-HODGKIN LYMPHOMA: A CASE AND BIBLIOGRAPHIC REVIEW. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.2, pp. 53-58. ISSN 0717-9308. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082010000200003.
A case report of a patient with treated Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is presented. In his usual tomographic control patient was requested a PET-CT scan to supplement prior study that showed a metabo-lically active focus on the left adductor muscle without evident tomographic correlation. Lesion underwent both a soft tissue ultrasound study and a directed biopsy, the latter being positive for secondary infiltration by lymphoma. This case has demonstrated the usefulness of applying complementary techniques in the management of these lesions, mainly of PET-CT scans in the study of unusual sites of spread. This combined medical imaging technique allows accurate lesion localization, which in turn permits performance of a subsequent directed study.
