This article is from Molecular Imaging and Radionuclide Therapy, volume 23.AbstractThe present study gives a detailed report of a patient with atypical Cogan’s syndrome with uveitis and sensorineural hearing loss. Cogan’s syndrome is characterized by nonsyphilitic interstitial keratitis and audiovestibular dysfunction. This syndrome can be divided into two groups, typical and atypical, based on the presence of interstitial keratitis. It may sometimes be associated with systemic vasculitis. Fluoro-D-glucose-positron emission tomography-computed tomography FDG-PET-CT scanning was used to investigate the presence of vasculitis. With FDG-PET-CT scanning, there is no pathological involvement in the walls of the arteries; thus the patient is protected from aggressive and long term immunosuppressive treatment’s side effects. Hence, we can conclude that FDG-PET-CT may play an important role in excluding the presence of vasculitis.
