A 65-year-old woman with no symptoms underwent whole-body F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography (PET) for cancer screening. FDG accumulation was detected incidentally in her arterial walls, including the aortic wall. She had no history of inflammatory or cardiovascular disease. Although accumulation of FDG is well recognizad in the aortic wall when vasculitis is present, this patient showed no symptoms of active vasculitis during the 22-month follow-up period after the PET study. The aortic wall might be a site where FDG accumulates physiologically in elderly persons.
