摘要

We report a patient with a solitary spinal neurofibroma in the posterior mediastinum interpreted as a metastatic tumor. A 46-year-old female with rectal cancer who had undergone operation and subsequent adjuvant chemotherapy two years previously was referred to our department for a follow-up whole body FDG-PET study. PET scan revealed a mass with increased uptake of FDG (SUV = 4.6) in the posterior mediastinum. MRI examination showed a dumbbell neurogenic tumor originating from the intercostal nerve at T6 level. A subsequent CT-guided biopsy demonstrated a neurofibroma.
