    Metastasis to umbilicus is often defined as Sister Mary Joseph's (SMJ) nodule. These nodules may be a manifestation of various underlying malignancies, about 50% arising from abdominopelvic cavity most frequently from the gastrointestinal tract. Pancreatic cancer is the predisposing cause in only about 6% of cases and the most common histopathology is adenocarcinomas. We present the case of a 64-year-old male who was found to have a SMJ nodule on staging F18 FDG PETCT scan.
