Recently, some gastric schwannomas have been reported to have high uptake of FDG. However, Glut-1 was reported to be negative in gastric schwannomas tested. A 64-year-old female patient received a laparoscopic partial gastrectomy for a FDG PET-positive submucosal tumor (SUVmax 6.61). The resected tumor was diagnosed as a benign gastric schwannoma. Glut family immunohistochemical examination revealed diffuse positive expression of Glut-3 and partial positive expression of Glut-1. On the other… CONTINUE READING
