PET/CT imaging of peritoneal carcinomatosis secondary to prostate adenocarcinoma.

The authors present a rare case of prostate adenocarcinoma with peritoneal carcinomatosis demonstrated by F-18 FDG PET/CT imaging. Traditionally, prostate cancer metastasizes to bones, lung, liver, pleura, and adrenal glands.

The peritoneal carcinomatosis, seen in this case, may mimic dissemination of malignancy originating from the gastrointestinal tract, ovaries, breasts, lungs, and uterus.
