Figure 1: A 52-year-old male patient presented with bloody diarrhea; axial CT image (a) shows mural thickening involving sigmoid colon reaching the rectosigmoid junction, it measures 20 mm in thickness, 7 cm in length. There is stranding of adjacent fat. CT stage: T3 N2a M0. Fused PET/CT (b) and PET image (c) show FDG avid lesion (SUV ma × 25.3) involving sigmoid colon reaching the rectosigmoid junction and pericolic tissue. PET/CT stag: T4 N2b M0. On histopathology, the tumor was perforating the visceral peritoneum with multiple metastatic lymph nodes (T4a N2b M0). FDG, fluorodeoxyglucose; PET/CT, positron emission tomography/computed tomography.
