INTRODUCTION: Sarcoid like reactions are a rare phenomenon that occur in a small percentage of cancer patients1. This reaction causes the formation of non-caseating granulomas inside regional lymph nodes, which causes them to appear hypermetabolic when viewed with FDG-PET. This is clinically important, because it could be confused with metastasis of the tumor, and could affect the staging and the treatment of the cancer. In addition to sarcoid like reactions and metastasis, there are other disease processes which can cause lymph nodes to appear hypermetabolic on FDG-PET, including Coal Worker’s Pneumoconiosis (CWP)2.
