Hemangiomas are extremely rare tumors of the heart that may present with pericardial effusion, dyspnea, chest discomfort, palpitations, or syncope. Few published reports have highlighted the utility of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (18F-FDG PET-CT) in the evaluation of cardiac lesions. We report a case demonstrating the utility of 18F-FDG PET-CT in a young man who presented with gross pericardial effusion and suspicion of metastatic carcinoma on fluid cytology.
