Abstract

A 73-year-old man with a prostate cancer treated by radical prostatectomy in 2006. For a biochemical recurrence of disease (prostate-specific antigen level, 0.1 ng/mL) during hormonal therapy, patient underwent 18F-choline PET/CT that showed a significant uptake in a diffuse right pleural thickening. The patient was sent to pleurectomy decortication showing an epithelioid pleural mesothelioma. This case highlighted that a histopathological evaluation is mandatory in case of a significant radiolabeled choline uptake in pleural lesions. © 2018 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
