Abstract

Metastases to pituitary gland, suprasellar region or skull base from endometrial carcinoma are an extremely rare occurrence. We report the case of a 77-year-old woman with metastasis to the sellar/suprasellar region from endometrial carcinoma revealed by 18F-FDG PET/CT and confirmed by subsequent CT and MRI of the brain. This case highlights the usefulness of a whole-body imaging methodology such as 18F-FDG PET/CT in the detection of distant and/or atypical sites of metastasis therefore being of help in guiding towards the correct diagnosis.
