The study includes both males and females ranging from 1-70 years with varying clinical presentations.   W[...]

Conclusion: Lymphoma although wide and varied, follows a common set of imaging patterns in all organs. Thus, if the imaging features follow one of the above mentioned patterns, lymphoma should be included in the list of differentials irrespective of the organ involved. PET CT is the gold standard for imaging, s[...]
