Gallium-67 ( 67 Ga) is a radioisotope that has been used for many years to detect inflammation or neoplasm. Its definite mechanism is still unclear. However, it has been noted that in certain physiological situations, 67Ga can accumulate in some sites. In this study, we report a case of gynecomastia with 67 Ga accumulation. We also briefly review articles that proposed some mechanisms which might contribute to the phenomenon, including estrogen overproduction and lactoferrin production
