A 17-year-old adolescent boy with a history of hypoproteinemia underwent 68Ga-NEB PET/MRI to evaluate possible lymphatic disorders suggested by FDG PET/CT imaging. The images revealed multiple lesions with increased 68Ga-NEB uptake and high signal on T2-weighted images, consistent with likely lymphatic disorder. Histopathological examination from biopsied specimen confirmed lymphangioma.
