Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis Caused by Neuro-Behçet Disease Accidentally Detected by 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT.



A 26-year-old man presented with recurrent oral ulcer, temporal headache, and blurred vision for 4 months. The giant cell arteritis was suspected, and 18F-FDG and 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT were done. There was no hypermetabolic lesion in 18F-FDG PET/CT. However, 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT showed multiple increased FAPI uptake lesions in the cerebral venous sinus. High-resolution MR venography revealed multiple chronic cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Neuro-Behçet disease was diagnosed finally. This case showed 68Ga-FAPI PET/CT may play some role in the management of neuro-Behçet disease.
