Pleomorphic HyalinizingAngiectatic Tumor PHAT is a rare mesenchymal neoplasma. It is a pathologicalterm describing a heterogeneous group of neoplasms of undetermined tumorigenesisand undefined malignancy. Based only on the morphological findings ofhistopathology, the biological potential of the tumor is indeterminate.Determination of glucose metabolism using FDG-PET revealed mildly increased FDGuptake in the tumor. We propose that FDG accumulation in the ectatic vessel,increased uptake of the pleomorphic cells and-or associated inflammatory cells,and increased permeability of the stroma lead to the imaging feature.
