The role of FDG PET/CT in management of soft tissue and bone sarcomas has been described in many studies up-to-date. However, contribution of PET/CT to diagnosis and treatment in some types of sarcomas that are seen with low incidence has not been identified properly yet. Clear cell sarcoma, synovial sarcoma of chest and myxoid lyposarcoma are rare types of sarcomas. We aimed to describe the FDG uptake patterns of these rare tumors and find out the role of FDG PET/CT in management of disease. (C) 2012 Elsevier Espana, S.L. and SEMNIM. All rights reserved.
