Gliomatosis peritonei (GP) is a rare benign complication of ovarian teratomas that does not impact overall survival. GP exhibits high 18-F FDG uptake unlike other non-malignant forms of mature teratoma. The specific characteristics of GP on functional imaging may be used to follow it with active surveillance in select cases.To our knowledge, we present the first case report of FDG-PET/CT imaging of gliomatosis peritonei (GP) and demonstrate that this entity can be strongly FDG-avid. GP is a rare histological entity. It has been described in relationship to immature teratomas and growing teratoma syndrome.....
