Recurrent Scapular Metastasis From Hepatoblastoma Shown on FDG PET/CT and F-DOPA PET/CT
We report the case of a 4-year-old girl with a biochemical relapse (plasma α-fetoprotein of 57,987.6 μg/L) after hepatoblastoma and extrahepatic metastases removal and adjuvant chemotherapy. Abdominal ultrasound, CT, and MRI failed to determine the site of recurrence. 18F-FDG PET/CT showed increased activity in the region of left scapula and adjacent soft tissue, which was incorrectly interpreted as the postoperative repair or inflammatory change. 18F-DOPA PET/CT showed increased activity and noticeable progressed lesion in the same place. Finally, the left scapula was identified as the site of recurrent metastasis from hepatoblastoma by pathological examination.
