A 73-year-old man with history of prostatic adenocarcinoma radical prostatectomy underwent 99mTc-MDP whole-body bone scan and subsequent 68Ga-labeled prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA) ligand PET/CT for restaging due to a gradual rise of prostate-specific antigen levels. Whole-body bone scan showed two focal zones of slightly increased uptake in the right fronto-parietal and temporal bones. 68Ga-PSMA PET/CT scan showed local recurrence in the prostatic bed and two foci of slightly increased uptake in the right temporal and fronto-parietal lobes. A brain CT scan, with IV contrast confirmed that foci of increased uptake in the temporal and parietal lobes were consistent with typical meningioma.
