ABSTRACT: Acquired perforating dermatosis (APD) is an uncommon cutaneous perforating disorder. We report a patient on hemodialysis who developed skin eruption and jaundice. He underwent FDG PET/CT under suspicion of biliary malignancies. PET/CT showed no significant abnormal uptake except of multiple FDG-avid nodules in the skin. The eruption he had was histopathologically diagnosed as APD by skin biopsy. His case suggests that APD should be considered as a differential diagnosis when multiple cutaneous FDG accumulations are found in a patient on hemodialysis. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report showing the FDG PET/CT findings of APD.
