Figure 3: Representative case for false-positive 1: A 51-year-old female, who is a known case of carcinoma left breast post therapy, presented with low back ache. On 18F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography–computerized tomography, there was a well-defined metabolically active soft-tissue density lesion in left lung lower lobe, along with multiple lytic metabolically active skeletal metastases. In view of chronology and exclusively lytic lesions, suspected to be a metachronous primary. Computerized tomography-guided biopsy was reported to be Her-2 neu positive metastatic breast carcinoma.
