Brain metastasis originating in adenocarcinoma of the prostate is rare and can be expected in cases of disseminated bone and soft-tissue disease. Asymptomatic brain metastasis is rare at any point of the disease stage. Ga-68 PSMA positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) is one of the useful investigations for assessing the disease status in adenocarcinoma of the prostate. We report a case of asymptomatic brain metastases detected in Ga-68 PSMA PET-CT scan.
