Positron emission tomography (PET) superimposed over a CT scan from a patient with autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome (ALPS). Note the massive cervical adenopathy. PET scans may be used as a screening tool in patients with autoimmune lymphoproliferative syndrome to decrease the number of lymph node biopsies used in screening for malignancy.
