Abstract

A 63-year-old man with a history of prostate cancer, treated with resection, radiation, and androgen-depriving therapy over 4 years, was referred to our department with suspicion of recurrence based on increased blood PSA levels (1.60 ng/mL). 68Ga PSMA PET/CT identified a solitary, PSMA-positive pulmonary nodule in the right lung. After resection, histologic analysis confirmed prostatic origin, and the blood PSA level decreased to 0.13 ng/mL. Solitary pulmonary metastasis from prostate cancer is rare. The benefits of local treatment of a single metastasis even in advanced disease are disputed among oncologists. Here, biochemical response to resection was excellent.
