Abstract

Hepatic tuberculosis is an unusual form of extrapulmonary tuberculosis and constitutes less than 1% of all cases of tuberculosis. Imaging studies for hepatic tuberculosis are nonspecific and mimic primary or metastatic carcinoma. Here we present 18F-FDG PET/CT images of a 25-year-old male patient with isolated hepatic tuberculosis.
