Primary Neuroendocrine Tumor of Prostate in a Case of Metastatic Adenocarcinoma of Lung: Rare Entity with Histopathological and Gallium 68 DOTANOC Positron Emission Tomography Correlation.

Neuroendocrine tumor (NET) of the prostate is an extremely rare entity which represents <1% of the prostatic cancers, but with increasing incidence. Its spectrum encompasses several histological variants ranging from well-differentiated tumor which are often indolent in nature; to aggressive neuroendocrine carcinoma which portends aggressive management. Hence, such rare entities are to be characterized and treated accordingly. We report an unusual case of well-differentiated NET of prostate which was flagged on fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography computed tomography (PET/CT) performed for other indication and confirmed on Gallium-68 DOTANOC PET/CT. Histopathology and immunohistochemistry confirmed the findings subsequently.
