Bronchial mucous gland adenoma is a very rare benign tumor that arises from the bronchial mucous-secreting glands. Its detection and appearance using 18F-FDG PET/CT has not been well characterized. We present a case of a 59-year-old man with FDG-avid mucous gland adenoma that mimicked lung cancer on 18F-FDG PET/CT.
