Uses of FDG PET/CT have been previously documented in multiple series in peripheral nerve pathologies, including neurolymphomatosis, peripheral nerve sheath tumor, and plexopathies. We present the case of a 24-year-old man with leprosy neuritis who underwent FDG PET/CT. We suggest that FDG PET/CT can be used as an adjunct tool to monitor neuritis in leprosy patients.
