F-FDG PET/CT Detects Late-onset Sialadenitis After Radioiodine Ablation Therapy

Sialadenitis is a common complication arising from radioactive iodine therapy. F-18-fluoro-2-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (18F-FDGPET/CT) has been proposed to be useful in detecting not only a malignant lesion but also inflammatory changes. An 18F-FDG uptake pattern can vary according to inflammatory changes, and the present study reports on a case of late-onset sialadenitis 3 years after the treatment, showing a diffuse and intense 18F-FDGuptakeon 18F-FDGPET/CT. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on such an 18F-FDG pattern in late-onset sialadenitis after radioiodine therapy.
Key Words: F-FDG, PETScan, Radioiodinetherapy, Sialadenitis
