Figure 1: Whole-body18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography scan; maximum intensity projection image (a), showing mild tracer uptake in the right hemithorax. The hybrid positron emission tomography-computed tomography and transaxial computed tomography images (b and c) reveal a large lobulated mildly fluorodeoxyglucose avid soft tissue mass lesion in the anterior mediastinum, extending into the right hemithorax, corresponding coronal and sagittal hybrid positron emission tomography-computed tomography and computed tomography images; (d-g) images showing the mass is arising from the right lobe of thyroid gland. Histopathological examination of the aforementioned lesion confirmed diagnosis of adenomatous hyperplasia of the thyroid gland
