Prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA)-targeted imaging is now an effective tool for the evaluation of prostate cancer patients. Although salivary glands take up68Ga-PSMA avidly, pathologies of these glands may be readily noticeable. Herein, we present a case of prostate cancer referred for68Ga-PSMA positron emission tomography–computed tomography in whom an isolated aplasia of the submandibular salivary gland was incidentally found.
