F-18 FDG PET/CT evaluation of radiotherapy response in rare case of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma.Ann Nucl Med. 2010 Feb; 24(2):115-9.AN
We experienced two cases of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma arising at unusual locations and used F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) to evaluate their response to radiation therapy (RT). A 62-year-old male with proven prostatic MALT lymphoma and a 43-year-old woman with proven duodenal MALT lymphoma had diffuse FDG uptake in the lesion. Both cases were treated with RT; following FDG, PET/CT showed decreased FDG uptake in each lesion. Neither patient had evidence of recurrence at more than 18 months after RT. FDG PET/CT is useful for indicating the treatment site in MALT lymphoma and in evaluation of therapeutic response following RT.
