Abstract
Nodular fasciitis (NF) is a common benign soft tissue tumor. However, 18F-FDGPET/CT findings of NFare limited. Two cases of NFare described that mimic soft tissue metastasis on 18F-FDG PET/CT during surveillance. 18FFDG PET/CT is well documented in the surveillance of malignancy and increasing worldwide. There are growing chances of encountering FDG-avid nonmalignant soft tissue lesion. Nodular fasciitis could be considered as possible diagnosis on 18F-FDG PET/CT if a solitary well- circumscribed ovoid hypermetabolic soft tissue lesion is located in a muscle, intermuscular space, or adjacent tendon, especially in patients with a clinically low probability of tumor recurrence or metastasis.
