Abstract

The findings of positron emission tomography combined with computed tomography (PET/CT) in a patient with FIGO stage IIA adenoma malignum of the uterine cervix are described in this article. PET/CT showed that the cervical tumor was intensely hypermetabolic with no evidence of disease spread. However, lymphadenectomy revealed metastatic spread to paraaortic lymph nodes. PET/CT may be useful in identifying primary site of disease in patients with adenoma malignum; however, the utility in detecting metastatic nodal disease remains to be determined.
