Abstract: We report a case of isolated splenic metastasis from ovarian cancer detected with 18F-FDG PET/CT. A 66-year-old woman with ovarian cancer was referred for 18F-FDG PET/CT to determine the cause of elevated serum CA-125 levels about 48 months after surgery. 18F-FDG PET/CT showed focal, intense uptake in the spleen, with no other abnormal findings. A splenectomy was performed, and the lesion was confirmed as metastasis from ovarian cancer pathologically.
