Sebaceous carcinoma is a rare malignant tumor typically originating in the skin of the eyelid. We report an unusual case of sebaceous carcinoma originating in the parotid gland of a 23-year-old woman. The patient underwent F-18 2-fluoro-2-deoxy-glucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) to determine the initial clinical stage. FDG PET/CT revealed strong uptake in the primary lesion but neither regional lymphatic nor distant metastasis were seen. These findings allowed for an accurate prediction of the nodal status, which contributed to precise determination of the initial stage. FDG PET/CT scans may be useful for the initial staging of cutaneous sebaceous carcinomas as well.
