In Vivo Demonstration of PSMA Expression in Adenocarcinoma Urinary Bladder Using 68Ga-PSMA 11 PET/CT
In vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) expression in various malignant and benign tumors. Based on the recent immunohistochemical study showing PSMA expression in adenocarcinoma of urinary bladder, we hypothesized that PSMA expression in adenocarcinoma of urinary bladder can be demonstrated in vivo using 68Ga-PSMA 11 PET/CT. We present a man with exstrophy bladder, presenting with adenocarcinoma urinary bladder referred for staging PET/CT. Both 18F-FDG and 68Ga-PSMA-11 PET/CT were done, which showed PSMA expression in the primary tumor as well as metastatic lymph nodes.
