Retroperitoneal Fibrosis Masquerading as Para-aortic Lymphadenopathy on F-18 FDG PET/CT in a Patient with Carcinoma Cervix.

Kashyap R, Mittal BR, Kumari S, Bhattacharya A, Singh B - World J Nucl Med (2011)

Bottom Line: We present a case of carcinoma cervix found to have a soft tissue lesion in retroperitoneal region with intense FDG uptake.However, this FDG uptake was false positive as the final diagnosis was retroperitoneal fibrosis.

Mentions: PET study revealed intense FDG uptake (SUVmax 7.9) in soft tissue lesion in the aorto-caval region in the abdomen, extending along bilateral iliac vessels (Figures 1 and 2). However no abnormal FDG uptake was noted in the uterus or the cervical region. CT guided FNAC from the lesion did not reveal any evidence of malignancy. A repeat CT scan after more than a month also did not reveal any change in the size of the lesions.
