We present the FDG PET images of a 60-year-old woman with a history of breast cancer, bilateral mastectomy, and reconstruction 4 years ago who presented for a whole-body scan to evaluate for recurrent and metastatic disease. The images showed inflammatory FDG activity around the ruptured left breast prosthesis likely in response to the leaking prosthesis. The patient underwent surgery for the replacement of the prosthesis, which did not show any evidence of neoplastic disease.
