Pyomyositis is an infective involvement of systemic skeletal muscles. We discuss the case of 43-year-old male who presented with quadriparesis, anemia, and hypercalcemia, leading to suspicion of multiple myeloma, and on FDG PET-CT, incidentally, pyomyositis was found. FDG PET-CT thus helped in diagnosing an occult infection which helped in the treatment of the patient.
