Abstract

A 40-year-old female patient with suspected multifocal extra-adrenal paraganglioma, on the basis of biochemical, genetic, and conventional imaging data, underwent F-FDG, F-DOPA and Ga DOTANOC PET/CT. FDOPA- and FDG-PET/CT detected a multifocal mediastinal and cervical paraganglioma. Ga-DOTANOC PET/CT detected 2 additional lesions compared to the other PET/CT methods. In our case, somatostatin receptor PET/CT with Ga-DOTANOC correctly assessed the extent of the disease in a patient with multifocal paraganglioma.
