A 42-year-old woman with a large pancreatic tumor had undergone 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) imaging. Moderate metabolic activity was detected on the head of the pancreas. The tumor was resected and it was histopathologically diagnosed as malign pancreatic hemangiopericytoma (HPC). HPC is a rare soft tissue sarcoma. The tumor is considered aggressive with high rates of local recurrence and metastasis regardless the localization. Herein, we present the imaging characteristics of HPC with 18F-FDG PET/CT.
