Figure 11: Recurrent disease. A 35-year-old young man had undergone left segmental mandibulectomy with pectoralis major myocutaneous flap and nodal dissection for carcinoma of the left retromolar trigone. Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/contrast-enhanced computed tomography was done 14 months after the surgery. maximum intensity projection image shows an area of linear fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in the neck (arrow in a). Axial positron emission tomography and fused positron emission tomography/computed tomography shows an area of increased fluorodeoxyglucose uptake in the floor of the mouth (arrow in b, c) which shows intense enhancement on the contrast-enhanced computed tomography image (arrow in d)
