Abstract

Acquired pulmonary stenosis in adults is rare and is usually caused by extrinsic compression from a mediastinal tumor. We present a case of anterior mediastinal Hodgkin lymphoma, who presented with cough and hemoptysis. Compression of the bilateral pulmonary arteries by the mediastinal mass was demonstrated by transthoracic echocardiography and CT pulmonary angiography. FDG PET/CT showed diffusely increased FDG uptake in right ventricular myocardium in addition to lymphomatous involvement of the lymph nodes and spleen.
