Abstract

We present the case of a 57-year-old woman with known Hodgkins lymphoma who presented with PET/CT findings of a breast mass and diseased axillary lymph node despite negative results from a recent routine mammogram and ultrasound. Needle biopsy of the mass and lymph node confirmed a diagnosis of infiltrating ductal carcinoma of the breast with nodal metastases.
