Bottom Line: A follow-up FDG PET/CT scan performed 3 months postoperatively was revealed no abnormal focal FDG uptake in the whole body revealing disease free status.FDG PET was helpful in diagnosing tumor recurrence in the distal remnant ureter.This case attempts to highlight the role of FDG PET/CT in follow-up, residual and recurrence evaluation.

ABSTRACT
A 56-year-old male having Grade I transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of left kidney, postleft nephrectomy and upper 1/3(rd) ureterectomy presented with painless hematuria. Restaging fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) revealed abnormal linear FDG uptake in the lower 2/3(rd) of the left ureter and in the bladder adjacent to the left vesicoureteric junction, no locoregional adenopathy nor distant metastases (Figures 1 and 2- left column). Patient underwent left lower ureterectomy with partial cystectomy. Postoperative histopathology was TCC. Instillation of Bacillus Calmette-Guérin injection in the bladder was done postoperatively. A follow-up FDG PET/CT scan performed 3 months postoperatively was revealed no abnormal focal FDG uptake in the whole body revealing disease free status. FDG PET was helpful in diagnosing tumor recurrence in the distal remnant ureter. This case attempts to highlight the role of FDG PET/CT in follow-up, residual and recurrence evaluation.
