Rights and Permissions

Increased uptake of F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) has been reported in thyroiditis and hypothyroidism. The authors present a case where increased FDG uptake in the thyroid was subsequently corroborated with a pertechnetate scan and thyroid hormone levels to diagnose previously undetected Graves' disease in a patient of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma being followed-up with positron emission tomography for disease recurrence.
