A 39 year old woman was found to have Hodgkin's disease in 1982 and was
treated with chemotherapy and radiation therapy. In 1992 she was
found to have recurrent Hodgkin's disease and was treated with chemotherapy.
In November of 1996, she was treated with high dose chemotherapy and autologous
stem cell transplantation. In April of 1998, sixteen months after
transplant she was found to have an elevated Ferritin and an elevated erythrocite
sedimentation rate (ESR). Gallium scintigraphy was obtained.

Is there an additional finding on the single photon emission computered
tomography (SPECT) not seen on the planar images?
