A 50-year-old man with recently diagnosed prostate cancer was referred for 68Ga–prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT with elevated prostate-specific antigen. PET/CT demonstrated increased PSMA uptake in an undisplaced transverse fracture of the L1 vertebral body. This case illustrates that PSMA uptake can occur in a transverse vertebral body fracture and is a benign cause of PSMA uptake.
