FDG Uptake by a Condylomata Acuminata in an HIV-Infected Patient Mimicked Urine Contamination
Division of Nuclear Medicine, Department of Radiology, National Center for Global Health and Medicine, Tokyo, Japan.Clinical nuclear medicine (Impact Factor: 3.93). 04/2012; 37(4):420-1. DOI: 10.1097/RLU.0b013e318238f48e
We report a case of a large condyloma on the upper side of the penis that exhibited a high FDG uptake on PET/CT images, mimicking urine contamination. The patient was a 30-year-old, HIV-infected homosexual man, and his CD4 cell count was 163/μL. FDG PET/CT imaging was performed for a survey of occult cancer. A whole-body FDG PET/CT examination showed an intense FDG uptake on the upper side of the penis. The CT portion confirmed that the lesion was not urine contamination but a tumor with a cauliflower-like shape. The tumor was excised and a histopathological examination revealed a condyloma.
