Abstract

There are no specific serological markers or imaging techniques for Adult-onset Still’s disease (AOSD) diagnosis. It is essential to rule out other diseases, especially malignant lymphoma, because both diseases sometimes show similar clinical presentations. However, unfortunately, this case showed PET-CT findings in AOSD patients could mimic those in malignant lymphoma.
