Figure 8: Abscess postsurgery. 51-year-old gentleman, squamous cell carcinoma of the left gingivobuccal sulcus, post left segmental mandibulectomy with fibula flap and skin graft. The patient presented with pain in the postoperative site. Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/contrast-enhanced computed tomography was done 4 months after the surgery. The fused axial positron emission tomography/computed tomography image shows focal fluorodeoxyglucose avid area posterior to the flap (yellow arrow in a). In the axial contrast-enhanced computed tomography image, there is a hypodense collection, surrounded by an enhancing rim (white arrow in b) – this is a classical finding seen in an abscess
