False-Positive Pancreatic Uptake Detected on 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT: A Priority Changing Incidental Finding While Assessing the Need for a Prostate Biopsy

A 72-year-old man underwent 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT because of an elevated prostate-specific antigen level despite prior prostatectomy. Besides low-intensity prostatic PSMA reactivities, a faintly PSMA-positive lesion in the pancreatic corpus drew attention, which seemed suggestive of a primary pancreatic cancer on the subsequent MRI and therefore had to be excised. The final diagnosis was pT3 low-grade neuroendocrine tumor. PSMA-positive incidentalomas, detected on 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT, can reveal more clinically significant extraprostatic disorders.
