Abstract
We report a case of a 75-year-old male patient treated with radiotherapy in 1999 for prostate cancer. Due to a rise in prostate-specific antigen, he underwent (11)C-choline PET/CT. The study was negative for secondary lesions but revealed an incidental pathologic focal brain uptake. A subsequent magnetic resonance examination confirmed the presence of a brain lesion typical for meningioma.
