Uccini 32 a b c d Fig. 1 (a) Hodgkin’s lymphoma, mixed cellularity subtype. The hallmark “Reed–Sternberg” cells are scattered and surrounded by an inflammatory infiltrate composed of histiocytes and mature lymphocytes (H&E ×400). (b) Burkitt’s lymphoma. A proliferation of intermediatesized neoplastic cells is associated with scattered macrophages containing cellular debris, resulting in the typical “starry sky” appearance (H&E ×400). (c) Lymphoblastic lymphoma. There is diffuse tissue involvement by small, round, blue, monomorphic tumor cells with dense chromatin and scant cytoplasm (H&E ×400).

C) Lymphoblastic lymphoma. There is diffuse tissue involvement by small, round, blue, monomorphic tumor cells with dense chromatin and scant cytoplasm (H&E ×400). (d) Anaplastic large B-cell lymphoma. The neoplastic cells have bizarre, lobulated, or wreath-like nuclei and abundant cytoplasm (H&E ×400) the cervical region; primary extranodal involvement is rare. NLPHL represents less than 5 % of all HLs and has a peak incidence around the age of 40. It is a monoclonal B-cell neoplasm, mainly characterized by a nodular infiltrate consisting of B lymphocytes, histiocytes, and intermingled lymphocyte predominant (LP) variants of RS cells, also termed “popcorn” cells.

18F-FDG–PET/CT is more accurate than conventional imaging to exclude disease after treatment [9]. An open issue, at least for adults, is the minimal residual disease evaluation. To the best of our knowledge, there are no appropriate data for children with malignant lymphoma. A role for 18F-FDG–PET/ CT in defining the target volume prior to radiotherapy has been established in several studies [10–12]. 18 F-FDG–PET/CT may also be beneficial during surveillance, even in the absence of suspected relapse, as it allows the earliest possible detection of recurrence.
