Abstract

Recent PET imaging of glioblastoma multiforme and other high-grade gliomas using prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)–targeted small-molecule radiotracers suggests a role for these agents in diagnostic imaging of recurrent/residual tumor and that PSMA-targeted endoradiotherapies may provide a new approach to therapy for patients with these difficult-to-treat tumors. We present a case of cerebral radionecrosis demonstrating PSMA-targeted radiotracer uptake. Our findings may represent a potential pitfall and limitation to the diagnostic application of PSMA-targeted agents for high-grade gliomas.
