A 45-year-old man with suspected colonic malignancy was referred to F-FDG PET/CT for staging. PET/CT images showed segmental increased FDG uptake along the intestine with thickening of colonic wall, where no mass was obviously seen. Subsequently, left hemicolectomy and resection of partial small intestine were done. Histopathology of the resected specimen confirmed the diagnosis of inflammatory pseudotumor involving colon and small intestine. No recurrence was detected on follow-up CT images after 6 months. Although most of the previously reported intestinal inflammatory pseudotumor manifested as a mass, it should be considered as a differential diagnosis of FDG-avid segmental intestinal wall thickening.

To describe four pediatric cases in which isolated orbital pseudotumor preceded the development of a systemic inflammatory disease by months to years.
Immunoglobulin (Ig)G4-related disease (IgG4-RD) was only recently defined and can be found in many organs. As intracranial lesions, hypophysitis and pachymeningitis are well known, whereas intracrania...
Hodgkin lymphoma usually involves the lymph nodes, but concomitant cutaneous manifestations might be present. The diagnosis of cutaneous involvement by Hodgkin lymphoma must be supported by specific c...
Cellular spindled histiocytic pseudotumor (CSHPT) is an exuberant, dense histiocytic proliferation seen in the setting of mammary fat necrosis. CSHPT has a broad histologic differential diagnosis, inc...
Two patients with malignant lymphoma in the medial area of the upper eyelid mimicking medial fat pad prolapse have been reported. Both of them did not notice any eyelid/orbital mass before presentatio...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether whether surgical resection followed by chemotherapy is superior to systemic chemotherapy alone in terms of treatment outcome and quality o...
The purpose of the study is to determine if the ShuntCheck test can correctly identify flow or no flow in a ventriculoperitoneal shunt in patients with pseudotumor cerebri.
The purpose of this study is to see how a diet that mimics fasting effects inflammation in patients with mild to moderate ulcerative Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). The diet may allow us...
PTC(Pseudotumor cerebri) patients may develop increased Intracranial pressure (ICP) that can produces increased pressure around the distal optic nerve,which is likely followed by venule co...
In this randomized, controlled, assessor blinded and prospective intervention study the investigators will evaluate the clinical feasibility and effectiveness of intermittent use of a fast...
A tumor-like inflammatory lesion of the lung that is composed of PLASMA CELLS and fibrous tissue. It is also known as an inflammatory pseudotumor, often with calcification and measuring between 2 and 5 cm in diameter.
A condition that is caused by HYPERPLASIA of LYMPHOCYTES in the small intestine (INTESTINE, SMALL) and the mesenteric LYMPH NODES. These lymphocytes produce an anomalous alpha heavy chain protein. Generally, these IPSID patients have either concurrent LYMPHOMA or develop lymphoma within a few years. The disease was first described in the Mediterranean region and is characterized by malabsorption; WEIGHT LOSS; DIARRHEA; and STEATORRHEA.
A slow-growing benign pseudotumor in which plasma cells greatly outnumber the inflammatory cells.
Clinically benign, histologically malignant, recurrent cutaneous T-cell lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by an infiltration of large atypical cells surrounded by inflammatory cells. The atypical cells resemble REED-STERNBERG CELLS of HODGKIN DISEASE or the malignant cells of CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA. In some cases, lymphomatoid papulosis progresses to lymphomatous conditions including MYCOSIS FUNGOIDES; HODGKIN DISEASE; CUTANEOUS T-CELL LYMPHOMA; or ANAPLASTIC LARGE-CELL LYMPHOMA.
A nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the ORBIT of the eye. It is usually composed of mature LYMPHOCYTES; PLASMA CELLS; MACROPHAGES; LEUKOCYTES with varying degrees of FIBROSIS. Orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (ORBITAL MYOSITIS) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (DACRYOADENITIS).
