Figure 4: Representative case for false-positive 2: A 42-year-old female, a known case of carcinoma right breast, postbreast conservation surgery, on regular follow-up, was diagnosed with a large irregular metabolically active soft-tissue density mass lesion in anterior mediastinum. On 18F-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography–computerized tomography, we suspected a metachronous second primary in the thymus, measuring 14.2 × 7.9 cm with maximum standardized uptake value of 14.3. computerized tomography-guided biopsy was taken from the lesion, which came out to be benign thymoma.
