Abstract

A 34-year-old woman with flank pain was referred for suspicious lymphadenopathy. PET/CT scan revealed disseminated lesions without apparent primary origin. Although she did not complain of any symptoms, after rapid deterioration, she died of respiratory distress and cardiac arrest. Her strong beliefs contribute to symptoms tolerance and late diagnosis.
