An 80-year-old woman had a history of follicular lymphoma diagnosed by biopsy of the inguinal lymph node 4 years prior. After systemic chemotherapy, she achieved complete remission. She presented with painless swelling on the left side of the eyelid. She also had suspicious lymph node enlargement in the cervical and axillary regions. FDG PET/CT showed an isolated FDG-avid lesion on the eyelid that was confirmed by biopsy to be compatible with lymphoma recurrence.
