1Istanbul Education and Research Hospital, Department of Nuclear Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey DOI : 10.31067/0.2020.327 Elastofibroma dorsi is a rare, benign, slowly-growing connective-tissue tumor that occurs most often in the infrascapular area in elderly people. It can be detected with various imaging modalities, like CT, MRI, USG and PET. Somatostatin is an endogenous hormone known by its inhibitory and neurotransmitter effects. Ga-68 DOTATATE which is a radiolabeled somatostatin analogue may show various uptake in physiological structures and also in tumor cells. Here in this case report, we describe the receptor expression of ED and present a case whose Ga-68 DOTATATE PET-CT scan revealed bilateral infrascapular soft tissue lesions, consistent with elastofibroma dorsi. According to our knowledge, this is the second case report in the literature, showing somatostatin receptor expression in elastofibroma dorsi.
