OBJECTIVE. We describe the range of organ systems involved and the spectrum of imaging findings seen in WaldenstrcF6m macroglobulinemia (WM). CONCLUSION. Although imaging is not mandatory in the initial workup of a patient with WM, a multimodality imaging approach can lead toward the diagnosis of a lymphoproliferative disorder, establish the tumor burden, identify sites of involvement, and thus explain the clinical presentation, help in determining prognosis and monitoring response to therapy, and help identify treatment-induced toxicity.
