Abstract

68Ga prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) PET/CT is a promising tool for imaging of prostate cancer. 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT uptake of prostate cancer and its metastases are reflective of significant overexpression of PSMA. However, PSMA expression of benign neoplasms and nonprostate epithelial malignancies is not very well defined. We report a moderate 68Ga-PSMA uptake of an acrochordon (skin tag), which was incidentally found in a patient referred for staging prostate cancer. Acrochordon is a frequent, small, soft, skin-colored or hyperpigmented, benign, and usually pedunculated neoplasm of the skin. Nuclear medicine physicians should be aware of it while reporting a 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT.
