A 69-year-old man with history of metastatic neuroendocrine tumor presented for initial staging with 68Ga-DOTATE PET/CT. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT showed incidental focal increased DOTATATE uptake in the left apical prostate tissue, which was thought to be of benign etiology. Digital rectal examination later was consistent with a palpable nodule along with elevated prostate-specific antigen of 7.0 ng/mL. MRI of prostate demonstrated a 3.8-cm lesion followed by a targeted biopsy that revealed prostatic acinar adenocarcinoma. Chronic inflammatory cell infiltrates were also noted on biopsy, and this may have been the cause of increased DOTATATE uptake seen on 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT study.
