Whole-body magnetic resonance for staging and response assessment of lymphoma in a pregnant woman treated with antenatal chemotherapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A 32-year-old pregnant female presented with bilateral supraclavicular swelling, diffuse itching and right shoulder pain.After lymph nodal biopsy, a diagnosis of nodular sclerosis Hodgkin’s lymphoma was obtained. A multidisciplinary teamdecided to start chemotherapy before the delivery, and whole-body MRI was used to stage the disease and evaluate theresponse after antenatal chemotherapy. This case shows that whole-body MRI is an attractive procedure that avoidsradiation exposure and contrast administration, and enables staging and follow-up of a pregnant patient without risk tothe fetus.
