Abstract

Inflammatory pseudotumor-like follicular dendritic cell tumor (IPT-like FDCT) histology is similar to that of the classical follicular dendritic cell (FDC) tumor, but, in addition, the inflammatory component is quite prominent. We report a case of IPT-like FDCT of the spleen by abdominal CT and 18F-FDG PET/CT. Abdominal CT showed a low-density, round, well-circumscribed defined mass in spleen, and the mass showed a high metabolism rate on 18F-FDG PET/CT.
