FDG uptake is an unreliable tool when it comes to distinguish between infectious and malignant etiology particularly in conditions involving the lymph nodes. We describe a case of a 42-year-old man who has been operated for ileal lymphoma two decades back and now developed ileostomy site infection which masqueraded as lymphoma recurrence on 18F FDG positron emission tomography-computed tomography.
