Bottom Line: A 52-year-old male was subjected to an F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) study for the evaluation of newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.An incidental non-FDG avid urinary bladder mass was detected, as well as an absent kidney.Ureterocele was suspected, but subsequently a seminal vesicle cyst was confirmed on a CT urogram.

ABSTRACT
A 52-year-old male was subjected to an F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) study for the evaluation of newly diagnosed non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. An incidental non-FDG avid urinary bladder mass was detected, as well as an absent kidney. Ureterocele was suspected, but subsequently a seminal vesicle cyst was confirmed on a CT urogram.

F-18 FDG PET/CT study, showing coronal section of abdomen and pelvis. The scan shows an enlarged spleen with relatively more FDG uptake than the liver. In addition, there are metabolically active inguinal, iliac, periaortic, prevertebral lymph nodes, as well as increased bone marrow activity. The left kidney is absent with compensatory hypertrophy of right kidney

Figure 1: F-18 FDG PET/CT study, showing coronal section of abdomen and pelvis. The scan shows an enlarged spleen with relatively more FDG uptake than the liver. In addition, there are metabolically active inguinal, iliac, periaortic, prevertebral lymph nodes, as well as increased bone marrow activity. The left kidney is absent with compensatory hypertrophy of right kidney

Mentions: A 52-year-old male presented with symptoms of fever, weight loss, and night sweats which had been progressing slowly over a period of past 1 year. He was found to have white blood cell count of 45,000/mcL. A CT of the abdomen showed hepatosplenomegaly and lymph node enlargement in the porta hepatis area. A bone marrow biopsy was performed which established the diagnosed of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Subsequently, an FDG PET/CT [Figures 1 and 2] was done to stage the disease and evaluate its extent. PET/CT detected several hypermetabolic lymph nodes, splenomegaly, absent left kidney and an incidental bladder mass. CT urogram [Figures 3–5] was later ordered, which confirmed the diagnosis of seminal vesicle cyst.
