Porocarcinoma is a rare malignant neoplasm of eccrine sweat glands representing 0.005 to 0.1% of all cutaneous tumors. As eccrine porocarcinoma carries a high risk of recurrence and metastases, early diagnosis and management are crucial to lower mortality rate. We present the case of porocarcinoma in a 69-years-old woman who underwent 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) for staging the disease. PET/CT showed metabolically active multiple cutaneous lesions and also picked up lymph nodal and distant metastases to lungs and breast accurately. PET/CT is useful for accurate staging of the disease and for treatment planning.
