Functional imaging of prostate carcinoma is important especially for restaging of the disease in the case of biochemical relapse. The powerful imaging modality F-18 choline PET/CT (FCH PET/CT) improves assessment of clinically silent sites of recurrence. Despite rich vascularization and vascular communication between the penis and the prostate, metastatic involvement of the penis is relatively infrequent. We present a prostate cancer patient with unusual FCH uptake in a penile metastasis from prostate cancer. Metastasis from prostate adenocarcinoma to the bulbus and corpus of penis was identified with FCH during follow-up, 3 years after the initial diagnosis.
