AB  - BACKGROUND: Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a rare autoimmune disease of unknown
      etiology that may affect multiple cartilage throughout the body. CASE REPORT: We 
      report on a middle-aged man presented with cough, chest tightness, and fever of
      unknown origin, 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed
      tomography (F-FDG PET/CT) was performed. And the imaging shows multiple increased
      FDG accumulation in tracheobronchial tree and all intercostal cartilages, as well
      as in nasal, right auricule, laryngeal cartilage. Based on the findings, the
      diagnosis of RP was made. CONCLUSION: Our case demonstrates that FDG PET/CT is an
      useful diagnostic tool to accurately determine the extent of inflammation
      throughout the body and to guiding the selection of a biopsy site.
