Abstract

Follicular lymphoma is the second most common type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Hepatic accumulation observed on FDG-PET/CT, which is the most useful imaging finding, is observed in 15% of cases. Secondary hepatic lymphoma is defined based on distant involvement, and it typically presents as diffuse infiltration, as in this case.
