Patient was a 52-year-old woman with medical history of lung adenocarcinoma operated in 2009 (stage I, T2 N0 M0), showing increasing levels of tumor markers and a doubtful retrocrural adenopathy by means of CT scan with intravenous contrast. An 18F-FDG PET/CT was performed, which showed 2 hypermetabolic foci in both annexes. The anatomopathological study detected bilateral ovarian adenocarcinoma compatible with metastases of pulmonary origin.
