A 54-year-old woman with suspicion of neuroendocrine tumor (NET) was referred for Ga-68-DOTATATE positron emission tomography/computed tomography (CT) imaging due to clinical findings. A well-defined osteolytic lesion on the corpus of the third lumbar vertebra was evident on CT images with mild uptake of Ga-68-DOTATATE, which led to suspicion of NET metastasis. Histopathologic examination revealed solitary plasmacytoma of the bone. The patient received local external radiotherapy for plasmacytoma. This case indicatesthat other diseases expressing somatostatin receptors may be inaccurately reported as tumor recurrence and highlights the importance of meticulous evaluation of positive findings.
