The Teaching Point

In patients undergoing PET/CT evaluation for suspected lymphoma, particularly those that display imaging characteristics such as pronounced enhancement, non-bulky nature, and periaortic location, retroperitoneal fibrosis should be entertained as a potential diagnosis, as this process may mimic other imaging findings of neoplastic disease.

Abstract
This article educates the reader on idiopathic retroperitoneal fibrosis and emphasizes the importance of considering conditions that mimic this disease on PET/CT through an illustrative case of a 58 year-old man presenting with intermittent abdominal, back, and scrotal pain undergoing successive PET/CT scans, both for diagnosis and following treatment.
