Abstract
Fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG PET) is routinely used mainly for diagnostics and monitoring of many oncological diseases. However, fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose as a radiopharmaceutical is not an exclusively tumour-specific tracer and numerous inflammatory diseases may be evaluated as well. An inflammatory lesion showing high 18F-FDG accumulation is likely to have high metabolic activity. Herein we report a case of a man, who presented with low-back pain and increased acute-phase proteins due to inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysm.
