Core Tip Here, we report a case in which Raman spectroscopy proved useful for differential diagnosis of phosphoglyceride crystal deposition disease (PCDD) in a patient with multiple malignant abdominal masses showing extremely high uptake on 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography, many years after undergoing open splenectomy. Initially, we strongly suspected the masses to be malignant. To rule out malignancy, we performed surgical biopsies and the pathological diagnosis was foreign body granulomas with crystal deposition. Raman spectroscopy led to the definitive diagnosis of PCCD. Raman spectroscopy is a simple and precise method for diagnosing PCCD.
