Cardiac paragangliomas are rare tumors of neural crest origin, most frequently seen in the left atrium. There are mixed opinions regarding the most appropriate imaging study for diagnosis and evaluation. We describe the novel utility of 18-F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/magnetic resonance imaging in the case of a 42-year-old male with cardiac paraganglioma.

Disseminated cryptococcosis without pulmonary involvement is a very rare phenomenon. Patterns of organ involvement in cryptococcosis resemble various other infective conditions as well as malignant conditions on fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography. We present a case of a 43-year-old male patient who had disseminated cryptococcosis. The rarity of the case being noninvolvement of lungs and meninges and resembling more like lymphoma due to the diffuse involvement of the lymph nodes on both sides of the diaphragm...

Nested stromal-epithelial tumor (NSET) is a very rare nonhepatocytic and nonbiliary primary tumor of the liver. An 8-year-old boy was incidentally detected with hepatic lesions, involving both lobes of the liver for which he later underwent orthotopic liver transplant. The hepatic lesions were confirmed to be NSET following histopathological examination of explant liver specimen. He later developed recurrence with multiple metastatic lesions, including multi-station nodal and right talar bone involvement. We here present the case highlighting the importance of (18)F-fludeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography in the management of this rare tumor, in particular for monitoring disease progression and/or recurrence...

Excessive skeletal radioisotope uptake in relation to soft tissues along with absent or faint activity in the genitourinary tract on skeletal scintigraphy is known as a "superscan." Prostate cancer is the most common cause of superscan in skeletal scintigraphy due to diffuse skeletal metastases. However, prostate cancer may cause secondary renal osteodystrophy leading to metabolic superscan also. Differentiating between these two entities are important as treatment options are different. We, hereby, describe a case of prostatic adenocarcinoma presented with metabolic superscan on methylene diphosphonate skeletal scintigraphy and demonstrate the utility of single emission computed tomography-computed tomography in differentiating between two entities...

A 39-year-old male presented to the emergency department (ED) with frostbite to the fingers of both hands. In the ED, he received warm baths, acetylsalicylic acid, clopidogrel, and heparin. A three-phase bone scintigraphy with technetium-99m-methylene diphosphonate revealed absent radiotracer uptake in distal phalanges of both hands. The patient received acetylsalicylic acid, clopidogrel and wound care for the next 5 days and made an excellent recovery with satisfactory wound healing in both hands. Early rapid rewarming and reperfusion can improve the prognosis significantly and therefore bone scan done within first 1-2 days may give spurious results...

Multiple colorectal adenomas (MCRAs) syndrome is a genetic syndrome characterized by multiple colorectal polyps. Patients usually present late in late fourth or fifth decade of life. They have a high risk for developing malignancy. We here present such case of a 61-year-old man with MCRAs who developed malignant degeneration of multiple colorectal polyps, which was demonstrated on (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography.

Primitive neuroectodermal tumor is a malignant small round cell tumor of presumed neural crest origin, usually affecting the bony structures of the nasal cavity and its clinical and radiological features may be confused with those of infection and malignancy. I report a case with primitive neuroectodermal tumor of the nasal cavity showing increased tracer uptake on (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography mimicking an another primary malignancy in a 17-year-old boy.

A 7-year-old girl with an episode of hematochezia and melena, suspicious for bleeding Meckel's diverticulum, was referred for a Tc-99m pertechnetate Meckel's scan. On dynamic planar scan, apart from prompt gastric visualization an oval-shaped, area of inhomogeneous tracer uptake was observed in the left lower quadrant of the abdomen. Subsequent single-photon emission computed tomography/computed tomography localized this to intestinal lumen, thus establishing the diagnosis of intestinal duplication (ID) with functional gastric mucosa...

Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) is a useful proven imaging modality in the management of many types of cancers. It is being used at various stages of treatment of cancer. Knowledge regarding the physiological biodistribution and false-positive findings should be kept in mind for correct interpretation. Pulmonary FDG uptake can be due to different causes such as infection, inflammation, and metastases which are invariably associated with structural abnormality on CT...

Lymphoma with skeletal muscle involvement is a rare clinical presentation. They may occur as primary skeletal muscle lymphoma, contiguous spread from bones or by metastatic spread. We present a rare case of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with pelvic skeletal muscle involvement presenting as low back ache. Lymphoma as the first differential diagnosis in this case was clinched after an (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) and confirmed as diffuse large B-cell lymphoma on histopathology. We seek to present an uncommon manifestation of lymphoma and highlight the role of (18)F-FDG PET CT in the diagnosis, staging, and management of lymphoma...

Transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) urinary bladder is known to metastasize to regional lymph nodes (LNs), liver, lung, bone, adrenal glands, and intestine. However, an asymptomatic TCC bladder manifesting as metastatic axillary LN mass and extensive retroperitoneal lymphadenopathy is rarely heard of. A 46-year-old male, smoker, presented with 8 cm × 6 cm right axillary swelling of 1-month duration. Aspiration cytology revealed metastatic deposits of poorly differentiated carcinoma favoring TCC. Metastatic evaluation with (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)FDG-PET) scan showed mass lesion urinary bladder, conglomerate right axillary mass and extensive retroperitoneal LNs with significant metabolic activity, biopsy from which revealed deposits of TCC...

A 54-year-old male patient was referred for computed tomography angiography to rule out cardiovascular disease. The examination revealed a single coronary artery originating from the right sinus of Valsalva, extending to the normal left circumflex artery and left anterior descending artery domains. The computed tomography showed only mild coronary sclerosis. The myocardial stress flow on the subsequently performed (13)NH3 myocardial perfusion positron emission tomography demonstrated a relative stress flow reduction in the distal segments along the monocoronary...

Numerous studies over past four decades have implicated a strong association of Streptoccus bovis infection with colorectal carcinomas. Strong is this association that a screening colonoscopy for identifying malignancy is considered mandatory in patients whose blood/fecal cultures show growth of this particular pathogen. Here, we report an interesting case of a 61-year-old female patient who presented with pyrexia of unknown origin for 3 weeks. Positron emission tomography/computed tomography, in addition to helping diagnose mitral valve endocarditis, also identified a clinically occult T2N0 rectal carcinoma...

Silicone injected for cosmetic purposes can provoke an inflammatory granulomatous response. In turn, silicone granulomas can lead to hypercalcemia, which is a rare, though potentially life-threatening condition. Hypercalcemia is a nonspecific laboratory finding with many potential etiologies. It may be difficult for clinicians to diagnose silicone-induced hypercalcemia, since the history of cosmetic silicone injections may not be elicited from the patient. Positron emission tomography using F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG-PET) can be used to evaluate patients with unexplained hypercalcemia as a means of searching for an occult malignancy or granulomatous process...

Primary pleuropulmonary synovial sarcoma, a mesenchymal tumor of lung and pleura, is very rare and highly aggressive condition among the primary lung malignancies. As role of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG PET-CT) has been established in lung malignancies in terms of staging, restaging, biopsy guidance, and treatment response evaluation, there is also role of FDG PET-contrast-enhanced CT (CECT) to raise suspicion or increase confidence in reporting of sarcomatous lung malignancy by studying characteristics of CECT scan features...

Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an uncommon entity with high mortality. Etiologically, they are classified as inflammatory and infective (mycotic), the latter being less common. Clinical presentation, laboratory investigations, and treatment for these may considerably overlap. However, choice of management and the need for surgical intervention depends on factors such as size and progression of aneurysm, persistent symptoms, and presence or absence of distant pathology. Although computed tomography (CT) is the gold standard for AAA, in selected cases, especially in infected AAA, fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-CT can provide valuable information...

A rare acquired demyelinating lesion of the pons central pontine myelinolysis (CPM) typically occurs after rapid correction of hyponatremia. There is disruption of blood-brain barrier due to osmotic stress allowing access for inflammatory mediators in extravascular brain tissue, which most likely attracts glial cells of the brain, attracts macrophages, and activates astrocytes. We present a case of female with a known history of inflammatory bowel disease who presented with altered sensorium and hyponatremia...
