68Ga-Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen Uptake in a Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor.

07:00 EST 7th March 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "68Ga-Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen Uptake in a Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumor."

We present a 60-year-old man with known prostate cancer treated with robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. Prostate-specific antigen levels did not decline accordingly, and a second Ga-PSMA PET/CT demonstrated a new focus with high Ga-PSMA uptake in the pancreatic tail. A subsequent CT scan did not display the lesion as a typical pancreatic tumor, and a spleen scintigraphy was also negative excluding an ectopic intrapancreatic accessory spleen. Ga-DOTATOC PET/CT showed uptake in the same area of the pancreatic tail consistent with a neuroendocrine tumor. This case illustrates that neuroendocrine tumors can be important pitfalls in Ga-PSMA PET/CT performed in prostate cancer patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.

A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

Proteins found in SEMEN. Major seminal plasma proteins are secretory proteins from the male sex accessory glands, such as the SEMINAL VESICLES and the PROSTATE. They include the seminal vesicle-specific antigen, an ejaculate clotting protein; and the PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, a protease and an esterase.

Extracts prepared from pancreatic tissue that may contain the pancreatic enzymes or other specific uncharacterized factors or proteins with specific activities. PANCREATIN is a specific extract containing digestive enzymes and used to treat pancreatic insufficiency.

A family of trypsin-like SERINE ENDOPEPTIDASES that are expressed in a variety of cell types including human prostate epithelial cells. They are formed from tissue prokallikrein by action with TRYPSIN. They are highly similar to PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN. EC
