A 79-year-old man had carcinoid syndrome and bilateral pulmonary nodules, which were biopsy confirmed as well-differentiated neuroendocrine tumor. PET/CT with 68Ga-[DOTA-Tyr3]-octreotate (68Ga-DOTATATE) showed multiple 68Ga-DOTATATE–avid bilateral pulmonary nodules, left hilar lymph node, as well as diffuse increased 68Ga-DOTATATE uptake in the prostate. A review of the history revealed that this patient had elevated prostate-specific antigen level. The prostate biopsy did not reveal evidence of prostate cancer but showed benign prostate hyperplasia.
