Introduction: An accessory spleen (AS), a benign and congenital condition, is characterized by a small nodule of splenic tissue found outside of the spleen, which can mimic a pancreatic neoplasm (p-NET). 68Ga-PET/CT is used to study lesions suspected for NET, but the radioactive tracer binds also the reticuloendothelial cells, resulting in false positives in case of AS.
