Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) is specific for prostate cancer cells; nevertheless when finding uptake in abnormal locations for prostate cancer metastases, it is important to consider other hypothesis, including second cancers. There are several papers about PSMA expression in many different types of cancer, but few reported expression in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST). In this case, we documented the GIST lesion not only by PET/CT but also by gastroscopy and histology. Additionally, PSMA immunochemistry was performed, showing PSMA expression in tumoral GIST cells (not in endothelial cells), evidencing a good correlation between PET/CT image and histology.
