Background: Posttherapy or diagnostic whole-body radioiodine (131I) scans are conducted to observe metastases of differentiated thyroid carcinomas. Sometimes, false-positive scans occur due a variety of lesions. Here we report a patient with marked radioiodine accumulation in a large adnexal cystadenofibroma, a benign ovarian tumor.
