Abstract

In a patient with stage IVA marginal zone lymphoma, (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography indicated that the disease was confined to the four major salivary glands. The positron emission tomography findings encouraged the use of radiotherapy with curative intent in this case. After 30 Gy of external beam radiotherapy to the parotid and submandibular glands, the patient entered a complete remission and remains free from progression more than 4 years later.
