Figure 1: Maximum intensity projection image (a) of positron emission tomography/ computed tomography shows a large abnormal fluorodeoxyglucose avid focus in the umbilical region. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (a) shows a large well-defined heterogeneously enhancing mass lesion (arrow) with solid, cystic, and hemorrhagic areas replacing the body and tail of the pancreas, measuring 13.2 cm × 12.8 cm × 9.8 cm (TR × CC × AP). There was no evidence of calcification. Positron emission tomography shows intense fluorodeoxyglucose uptake (maximum standardized uptake value 20.0, arrow) in the solid enhancing portions of the mass lesion in the pancreas
