Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) is a rare lymphoid neoplasm which occurs mainly in lymph nodes, especially cervical and mediastinal; it can be difficult to diagnose and often is misdiagnosed. Its pathogenesis is still not clear, like its evolution. We report a case of 60-year-old woman with FDCS of left lateral cervical node followed for almost 10 years, after a left selective neck dissection, who underwent five (18)F-FDG PET/CT. This technique has proven to be an useful method for the management of this patient, mainly for the follow up, detection of relapse and therapy response evaluation.

Abstract

Follicular dendritic cell sarcoma (FDCS) is a rare lymphoid neoplasm which occurs mainly in lymph nodes, especially cervical and mediastinal; it can be difficult to diagnose and often is misdiagnosed. Its pathogenesis is still not clear, like its evolution. We report a case of 60-year-old woman with FDCS of left lateral cervical node followed for almost 10 years, after a left selective neck dissection, who underwent five (18)F-FDG PET/CT. This technique has proven to be an useful method for the management of this patient, mainly for the follow up, detection of relapse and therapy response evaluation.
