Figure 1

A 42-year-old female patient developed dry cough without fever. (a) Chest CT axial imaging showed enlarged lymph nodes in the mediastinum and right hilar areas. (b) PET/CT scan showed extensive hypermetabolic activity in the mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes (SUVmax 24.5). PET/CT indicated malignant lesions (lymphoma). The final pathological diagnosis was tuberculosis (c).
