In 37 patients with seemingly localized non‐Hodgkin's lymphoma of the Waldeyer's ring (WR‐NHL), lymphangiography (LAG) and/or gallium‐67 scans (Ga‐67 scans) were done. Before these procedures, 20 patients were diagnosed as Stage I, and 17 as Stage II. LAG was done for 30, and Ga‐67 scans for 32, 25 of whom had both. Five patients (16%) were upstaged to Stage III or IV by Ga‐67 scans. Only one (3%) had abnormal LAG findings, in whom Ga‐67 scans also showed abnormal accumulation in the para‐aortic region. Because of this low positive rate, LAG is not recommended for staging of WR‐NHL.
