Résumé
We present images of a 50-year-old man who referred for treatment of a classic Hodgkin lymphoma. While F-FDG PET/CT demonstrated a complete metabolic remission after chemotherapy, an increased F-FDG uptake of a right testicular lesion in F-FDG PET/CT and an unexplained bilateral gynecomastia were observed. A benign Leydig cell tumor was histopathologically proved after a right radical orchiectomy. The serum estradiol level was abnormally elevated reflecting the estrogen-secreting profile. This report highlights that a focal F-FDG uptake in the testicular region with unexplained gynecomastia should suggest the diagnosis of an estrogen-secreting Leydig cell tumor on F-FDG PET/CT.
