Abstract

An 85-year-old man with prostate cancer for metastatic workup underwent 68Gallium Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen (68Ga-PSMA) PET/CT (68Ga-PSMA PET/CT), which revealed unusual tracer uptake in the shaft and glans of penis as well as multiple systemic metastases in liver, skeletal, and lymph nodes. The penile lesion was proved to be metastatic adenocarcinoma from prostate on fine needle aspiration cytology. The patient underwent 177Lutetium (177Lu)-labeled PSMA radioligand therapy, which also revealed diffuse tracer uptake in the penile shaft as well as other metastatic sites.
