Abstract

We describe a case using PET/CT to image a metastatic inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT). IMTs are a collection of uncommon tumors that contain myofibroblasts and inflammatory cells, as the name suggests. Before the PET/CT scan, the patient had a left pneumonectomy and a partial resection of the occipital lobe for IMTs. The PET/CT scan with FDG demonstrated foci of intense activity in the proximal jejunum and body of the pancreas. Disease above the diaphragm still persisted as supraclavicular adenopathy. The scan showed no evidence for local recurrence in the brain or left hemithorax.
