Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma (ASPS) is a rare sarcoma predominantly presenting as a painless mass in the lower limbs. This report presents the 18F-FDG PET/CT findings of ASPS in a 17-year-old woman with a painless abdominal mass. Initial 18F-FDG PET/CT showed a hypermetabolic mass in the retroperitoneum and a few hypermetabolic lung nodules, suspicious of metastases. After treatment with sunitinib and surgery, a subsequent 18F-FDG PET/CT revealed complete resolution of the tumors. Following the detection of recurrence, the patient underwent treatment with nivolumab/ ipilimumab, leading to complete resolution as demonstrated 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging.
