Thymic Granuloma Mimicking Malignancy on 18F-FDG PET/CT.

Summary of "Thymic Granuloma Mimicking Malignancy on 18F-FDG PET/CT."

We present a case with an unexpected nodule in the thymus showing increased F-FDG uptake on PET/CT. The nodule was surgically removed. Histopathologic examination revealed granuloma in the thymus. This case indicates physicians and radiologists must be aware that although thymic granuloma is rare, it should be included in the differential diagnosis of the thymic lesions with F-FDG accumulation along with neoplastic and nonneoplastic conditions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A neoplasm originating from thymic tissue, usually benign, and frequently encapsulated. Although it is occasionally invasive, metastases are extremely rare. It consists of any type of thymic epithelial cell as well as lymphocytes that are usually abundant. Malignant lymphomas that involve the thymus, e.g., lymphosarcoma, Hodgkin's disease (previously termed granulomatous thymoma), should not be regarded as thymoma. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

A non-neoplastic inflammatory lesion, usually of the jaw or gingiva, containing large, multinucleated cells. It includes reparative giant cell granuloma. Peripheral giant cell granuloma refers to the gingiva (giant cell epulis); central refers to the jaw.

A disorder of the skin, the oral mucosa, and the gingiva, that usually presents as a solitary polypoid capillary hemangioma often resulting from trauma. It is manifested as an inflammatory response with similar characteristics to those of a granuloma.

Subacute inflammation of the inguinal lymph glands caused by certain immunotypes of CHLAMYDIA TRACHOMATIS. It is a sexually transmitted disease in the U.S. but is more widespread in developing countries. It is distinguished from granuloma venereum (see GRANULOMA INGUINALE), which is caused by Calymmatobacterium granulomatis.

The mimicking of the behavior of one individual by another.
