Incidental PET/CT Findings of Suspected COVID-19 in a Region of High Prevalence

Cureus. 2020 Aug 13;12(8):e9716. doi: 10.7759/cureus.9716.


We describe a case of suspected COVID-19 pneumonia in a 61-year-old male with known primary central nervous system diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) who underwent restaging PET/CT during the initial peak of infection of COVID-19 pneumonia within the New York region. At the time of his routine PET-CT to assess for disease progression, typical CT imaging features of COVID-19 pneumonia were identified. Upon further investigation, the patient was asymptomatic, and his infection status remained unknown. He was subsequently lost to follow-up with his COVID-19 status pending.
