A 57-year-old man had a diagnosis of a bronchial mucosa–associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma in the left lung and monoclonal gammopathy. The patient underwent whole-body 11C-methionine PET/CT, in order to evaluate the amino acid avidity of the lesion and to stage the bronchial mucosa–associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma. 11C-methionine uptake was detected in the lung lesion and in the mediastinal lymph nodes.
