Figure 2: A 40 year-old-male with clinical diagnosis of pyrexia of unknown origin, referred to the whole-body fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan to find the cause of fever. Whole-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan acquired from head to toe revealed intense Grade III fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in the thoracic aorta (white arrow) and other major blood vessels with total vascular score of 17. In addition, focal intense fluorodeoxyglucose uptake was also noted in the periarticular surface of the bilateral knee and ankle joint (black arrow) suggestive of associated polymyalgia rheumatica
