PMID:  20544868     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of primary splenic lymphoma incidentally detected on abdominal ultrasound as a well-defined homogenous hypoechoic splenic mass. Further characterization with contrast-enhanced ultrasound showed the mass to enhance homogenously during the arterial phase to a degree similar to that of the normal splenic parenchyma followed by rapid washout becoming hypoenhanced on delayed phase.
