Abstract/OtherAbstract:
ABSTRACT: FDG PET/CT imaging has been used in various medical fields, including neoplastic and infectious diseases, for a long time. We reported a 62-year-old man with fever, chronic cough, arthralgia of the left side of the hip, and body weight loss. Chest radiograph showed increased infiltration in both upper lungs, and the acid-fast stain of sputum was positive. Whole-body PET/CT scan revealed a lesion with intense FDG uptake in the joint of the side left of the hip. Osteoarthritis of the hip was initially impressed by an orthopedist. However, tuberculous arthritis was subsequently confirmed by deep pus culture.
