A 73-year-old man underwent a 68Ga-PSMA-HBED-CC 11 PET/CT for evaluation of rising PSA in the context of previous radical retropubic prostatectomy and salvage radiotherapy for prostatic adenocarcinoma. There was no definite PSMA avid recurrence in the prostatic bed. Intense PSMA avid uptake was seen in the anterior aspect of the spleen. Further characterization with multiplanar multisequence pre- and post-IV contrast MRI of the upper abdomen with arterial, portal venous, and delayed phase acquisitions revealed a lesion with appearances consistent with a splenic hemangioma.
