Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) is a rare benign condition characterized by multiple smooth muscle implants in the peritoneal cavity. The clinical presentation is usually nonspecific abdominal discomfort and nontender abdominal mass. Preoperative imaging usually points to suggests malignancy due to its unusual location, but the diagnosis can only be confirmed by histopathological examination. We share 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography images of a 43-year-old woman diagnosed with LPD and briefly discuss the clinical aspects of this disease.
