Both 18F-FDG and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT are used in the evaluation of pheochromocytomas. We reported 18F-FDG and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT findings in a 60-year-old man who had recurrent metastatic pheochromocytoma coexisting with lung adenocarcinoma. The metastatic pheochromocytoma showed increased activity on both 18F-FDG and 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT, whereas the lung adenocarcinoma lesion showed no obvious DOTATATE activity.
