RADIOLOGY: GASTROINTESTINAL: GI: Case# 33964: INFILTRATIVE METASTATIC DISEASE. 49 year old female with Hodgkins lymphoma, fever and neutropenia. Patient has also had 2 day history of abdominal pain and diarrhea. Marked bowel wall thickening and edema involving the antrum, duodenum, proximal small bowel and rectosigmoid colon. Given the history of lymphomatous involvement of the bowel, this likely represents infiltrative metastatic disease. However other etiologies for bowel wall thickening include edema, hemorrhage, and infection should be considered.
