Corticomedullary mixed tumor (CMT) is a single adrenal tumor mass composed histologically by an admixture of adrenal cortical and medullary cells. It is a rare condition, with approximately 20 cases reported to date. To our knowledge, the positron emission tomography (PET) imaging findings of this mostly benign tumor have not been reported in the literature. We present a case of CMT who was evaluated with both 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) and 68Ga-DOTATATE. The hypermetabolic tumor seen on 18F-FDG PET/computed tomography scan showed no abnormal uptake by 68Ga-DOTATATE.
