Abstract
Ga-67 citrate scintigraphy in the management of malignant lymphomas is well established. It cannot, however, differentiate malignant from benign lesio ns because this agent also accumulates in benign inflammatory lesions. The authors present a case of increased I-123 IMP uptake on both early and dela yed SPECT images in a patient with malignant lymphoma of the central nervou s system. Results show that I-123 IMP SPECT can help differentiate malignan t lymphoma from benign lesions and other malignant brain tumors.
