Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An 86-year-old man presented with fatigue and weight loss. Combined F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography and computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) demonstrated a heterogeneous soft-tissue mass continuous with the small bowel in the left inguinal region, with marked hypermetabolic activity on PET images. Physical examination of the left groin demonstrated a previously unidentified nonreducible, tender mass. Surgical exploration revealed a perforated Richter hernia in the internal inguinal ring with adjacent groin abscess. Pathologic evaluation confirmed these findings without underlying malignancy.
