Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Small cell carcinoma of prostate (PSCC) is an uncommon and aggressive type of prostate malignancy with limited data on the use of (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in the clinical management of this rare entity. In this report, clinical and imaging findings of a patient with PSCC are presented. We aimed to discuss the role of PET/CT in the evaluation of PSCC in combination with histopathological characteristics of tumor and emphasize the importance of PET/CT in the clinical management of PSCC.
