|Patient: 24 year old male|
|History: 24-year-old male with epitheliod sarcoma is referred for evaluation of metastases.|
|Findings: 14.8 mCi FDG iv.|
FDG-PET/CT images demonstrate a focal intense tracer accumulation involving the left hand. Additionally, there is a focus of increased tracer in the left axilla within an axillary lymph node.
|Diagnosis: Epitheliod sarcoma of left hand.|
General Discussion: 24-year-old man with slowly developing ulcerative lesion involving the skin of the hypothenar region of the left hand. Biopsy subsequently demonstrated epitheliod sarcoma.|
The patient was injected in the right hand. Although tracer accumulation in the wrists and hands is assumed to be small residual tracer at the injection site, such foci of increased uptake can represent the primary site of disease. Although the tracer accumulation in the left axilla was considered suspicious for metastatic lymphadenopathy, no cancer was demonstrated in the lymph nodes on pathologic evaluation of material obtained at axillary dissection.
