Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is a cell surface glycoprotein, which is frequently overexpressed on prostate cancer cells. A 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT can be used for early detection of lymph node or bone metastases after radical prostatectomy when there is biochemical recurrence. This report describes PSMA uptake in a healing fracture masquerading as metastatic bone disease in a patient with a history of prostate adenocarcinoma. Clinicians reporting 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT should be aware of this potential important pitfall.
