68Ga-DOTATATE Uptake in a Soft Tissue Metastasis From Clear Cell Renal Cell Cancer
A 64-year-old man with a history of metastatic clear cell renal cell cancer was referred for progress 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging. 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT imaging demonstrated increased DOTATATE uptake (SUVmax 13.8) in the left thigh localized to a soft tissue lesion. Cytopathology of the resected lesion was in keeping with a clear cell renal cell cancer metastasis. This case illustrates that 68Ga-DOTATATE accumulation in a soft tissue lesion can be due to a clear cell renal cell cancer metastasis.
