The cervical spine is a common focus of destruction in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and the resultant instability and neural compression represent severe complications in these patients. Evaluation of disease activity at the level of the atlantoaxial joint is important in such cases. Here, we report a 47-year-old man with a 3-year history of rheumatoid arthritis. FDG PET/CT clearly demonstrated a hot spot in the atlantoaxial area, suggesting high metabolic activity of synovitis.
