This case report follows a 47-year-old man who had multiple grafts undergoing FDG PET/CT (positron emission tomography/computed tomography) scan to evaluate for graft infection. Initial CT showed enhancing soft tissue and fluid collection around the graft, and the subsequent FDG PET/CT showed findings concerning for graft infection. This case exemplifies that FDG PET/CT is a synergistic tool in diagnosing aortic graft infections, a rare and often fatal complication of aortic grafts.
