Abstract

Brown tumours are the end stage of primary or secondary hyperparathyroidism. Clinically, brown tumours most often manifest as slowly growing, painful masses. These tumours can behave aggressively and be destructive. We report a patient with high accumulation of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography / computed tomography (PET/CT) in brown tumours as the potential cause of false-positive results in the evaluation of a patient for malignant primary tumour or metastases.
