68Ga-fibroblast activation protein-specific inhibitor (FAPI)-04 PET/CT was performed in a patient with left lower outer quadrant breast cancer who had 18F-FDG PET/CT imaging. 68Ga-FAPI-04 PET/CT showed higher accumulation of radiotracer in primary tumor and axillary lymph nodes than 18F-FDG PET/CT. In addition, focal increased FAPI uptake was observed in another nodular lesion in the lower inner quadrant in the same breast, which was considered malignant. However, Tru-Cut biopsy of this lesion was reported as benign lymphoid tissue. This case showed that all FAPI accumulation in breast tissue should not be interpreted in favor of malignancy; histopathological confirmation is required.
