FDG PET/CT as a molecular imaging modality detected spinal cord metastases in a patient with medulloblastoma. Increased FDG uptake was reported as negatively correlated with survival in medulloblastoma in the literature. Although, spinal cord metastases associated with medulloblastoma detected with FDG-PET/CT imaging is a rare condition. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report on spinal cord metastases from medulloblastoma detected by PET/CT.
