18F-Fluoro-ethyl-choline (18F-FCH) PET/CT is widely used to study patients affected by prostate cancer. However, 18F-FCH may be taken-up by other neoplastic diseases, infections, and non-infective inflammatory processes. While this behavior may be an opportunity to study different diseases, on the other hand, this condition brings with it the source of error in the evaluation of the images. Here we present the case of a meningeal inflammatory pseudotumor evidenced by 18F-FCH.
