Figure 5: A 36-year-old female with left frontal astrocytoma previously treated with surgery and radiotherapy; scans performed 66 months after the primary treatment. Single photon emission computed tomography-computed tomography (a) could not detect any abnormal radiotracer localization while positron emission tomography-computed tomography (b) revealed recurrent disease in the left frontotemporal region posterior to the postoperative gliotic cavity. The patient underwent reoperation. Histopathology revealed recurrent astrocytoma. The patient died 11 months after the scans
