Recurrent Thymoma with Lung, Pleural, and Splenic Metastases Demonstrated on F-18 FDG PET/CT

Deverly Tumapon, E. Edmund Kim
Thymomas are rare, slow-growing, and less aggressive anterior mediastinal tumors of epithelial origin. Its propensity for extra-thoracic spread is uncommon. Regional assessment by chest CT-scan has been the imaging modality of choice for disease staging and restaging. However, there are reported cases of hematogenous metastases to the brain, liver, pancreas, and kidneys but very rarely to the spleen. We reported a case of recurrent thymoma with metastases to the lung, pleura, and spleen. F-18 FD...
