A 65-year-old patient with a newly diagnosed prostate cancer underwent planar bone scintigraphy. This study revealed increased focal activity in the right distal clavicle, left scapula, and right greater cornu of the hyoid bone. SPECT/CT confirmed these lesions. Metastases to the hyoid bone are rare.
