Abstract

Ekstramedüller hematopoez (EMH), hematopoetik öncü hücrelerin kemik iliği dışında üretimidir ve lokalizasyonuna göre kitle etkilerine neden olur. EMH odaklarını saptamada en sık MRI ve/veya CT kullanılır. Biz burada talasemi intermedia’lı bir olguda paravertebral kitleye yol açan ve CT ile saptanan bir EMH olgusu sunduk. PET CT ile daha ileri incelemede, CT ile saptanamamış olan, akciğer kanseri saptandı.Extramedullary hematopoiesis (EMH) is the production of hematopoietic precursors outside the bone marrow cavity, and it causes mass effects according to its localization. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and/or computed tomography (CT) scans are used most commonly to detect EMH foci. We report herein a case with thalassemia intermedia causing paravertebral mass associated with EMH detected by CT scan. We further evaluated the case with positron emission tomography (PET) CT, and lung cancer, which was not revealed in the CT scan, was detected coincidentally
