 18F-FDG PET/CT is increasingly applied in staging and response to treatment assessment of lymphomas. Multiple isolated cases with extranodal involvement of Non hodgkins Lymphoma (NHL), detected on 18F-FDG PET/CT, have been previously reported. Here, we report a rare case of extranodal NHL involving multiple sites namely pericardium, kidney, pancreas in addition to mediastinal lymph nodes which were detected on 18F- FDG PET/CT.In the present case, involvement was accurately demonstrated, and early complete remission was documented using baseline and follow-up FDG PET/CT.
