Abstract

A 26 years old male patient with Hodgkin's disease, considered as complete remission, underwent 18F-FDG whole body PET/CT. 18F-FDG whole body PET/CT showed unexpected hypermetabolic nodule in left quadratus femoris muscle suggesting local recurrence. Subsequent MRI also revealed well-enhancing nodular lesion with intermediate and high signal intensity on T1WI and T2WI, respectively. The lesion was confirmed as nodular fasciitis by pathologic examination of the excised specimen.
