We report a case of adenocarcinoma prostate treated previously with radical prostatectomy and hormonal therapy who underwent 68Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen PET/CT for recurrence evaluation. In addition to radiotracer uptake in the prostate bed, unusual intense prostate-specific membrane antigen uptake was also noted in the left adrenal gland. With a clinical suspicion of pheochromocytoma, 68Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT was done, which revealed tracer-avid left adrenal lesion.
