Rectal adenocarcinoma metastasizes most commonly to the lungs and liver. Metastasis to heart, although described in literature, is a very rare phenomenon. We describe the18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography–computed tomography (18F-FDG PET-CT) findings of a 45-year-old male who was a biopsy-proven case of adenocarcinoma rectum. Apart from metastatic disease involving liver, lungs, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, metastasis to right ventricle was also seen on PET-CT scan.
