In brief: Lymphoma in spleen
Inhomogenious spleen refer to a ct scan reading where different area of the spleen might have different texture.
In general some of these cases are nonspecific, some are related to ifarction (dead tissue) and some are related to lymphoma. In this case, if the patient is already diagnosed with hodgkins lymphoma, most probably these area are lyphoma in the spleen surrounded by normal spleen tissue.
