A 76-year-old man with metastatic adenocarcinoma of the prostate presented with increasing dyspnea. After being treated initially with drainage and afterwards with pleurodesis, he was referred for Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen 11 PET/CT imaging for restaging purposes. PET/CT demonstrated extensive Ga-prostate-specific membrane antigen 11 uptake in the right pleura. Histopathology confirmed the rare case of malignant pleural effusion from metastatic prostate cancer.
