Figure 1: The positron emission tomography/computed tomography scan of a young male, showed increased fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) uptake in right perihilar lung lesion [black arrow in Figure 1a and red arrows in Figure 1b] compatible with known lung neoplasm. Maximum intensity projection image also showed increased FDG uptake in accessory muscles of respiration-bilateral sternocleidomastoid and intercoastal muscles [blue arrows in Figure 1a] and unilateral, intense FDG uptake in left hemi-diaphragm [red arrows in Figure 1a and c]. On CT, there was no morphological abnormality in any of the above-mentioned muscles with FDG uptake
