Abstract

Positron emission tomography with fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG PET) has been successful in detecting and staging a variety of neoplastic diseases. However, the assessment of ectopic kidneys can be difficult as a result of uptake of urinary radioactivity in an unexpected region. Urolithiasis and urinary stasis are common in pelvic kidneys. Because of their atypical location, this can make the recognition of pelvic kidneys challenging. The authors report a case that would have been mistaken for cancer if they had not known the patient's history or obtained anatomic images.
