Özet

A 55-year-old patient, who had undergone excisional biopsy of upper lip two years ago and diagnosed to have squamous cell carcinoma, was referred to us for evaluation with Fluorine-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (F-18 FDG) positron emission tomography (PET)/CT (F-18 FDG-PET/CT) scan. F-18 FDG-PET/CT scan was performed and the maximum intensity projection images (MIP) showed unusual FDG uptake at both ears. Histopathological examination of the biopsy specimen obtained from the ears revealed discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE).
