Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG PET) has been used extensively to detect and stage various cancers. However, normal variation and inflammatory lesions may lead to false-positive interpretations of PET findings. The authors report three cases of increased pelvic FDG uptake with differing origins. Although the findings are similar, a postpartum uterus, lymphoma, and a bleeding uterus caused pelvic FDG uptake in these patients. Interestingly, of these three patients, the patient with lymphoma had the lowest level of FDG uptake. Clinical correlation is needed for the accurate interpretation of FDG-PET findings.
