Figure 1: Maximum intensity projection image (a) of the bone positron emission tomography/computed tomography showing diffusely increased 18F-fluoride uptake in all the left ribs. Coronal positron emission tomography/computed tomography (b) and computed tomography (c) showing diffuse periostitis of their inner cortex overlying the thickened pleura (arrows). Focally intense spots are seen in the second (blue arrow in a), fourth and fifth ribs (black arrows in a), and posterior ninth rib (red arrow in a). Axial positron emission tomography/computed tomography (d) and computed tomography (e) showing focal lytic erosion of the inner cortex in the left ninth rib (arrows)
