Abstract

A 43-year-old woman presented with an FDG-avid mediastinal Ewing sarcoma invading and nearly occluding the superior vena cava. Geographic increased FDG uptake in hepatic segment IVA was the only other site of nonphysiologic FDG activity. This focal activity was without an underlying mass, had atypical morphology for a hepatic metastasis, and correlated well with prior CT findings of abnormal segment IVA enhancement resulting from the recruitment of portocaval collaterals. In the correct setting, the 18F-FDG hepatic hot spot should be considered in the differential of a focal FDG-avid hepatic lesion in segment IVA.
