An Unusual Bone Metastasis Mimicking SAPHO (Synovitis, Acne, Pustulosis, Hyperostosis, and Osteitis) Syndrome on Bone Scintigraphy.


:The costosternoclavicular region is not a common bone metastasis site, and symmetrical involvement is even rarer. Increased tracer uptake in the manubrium and sternoclavicular joints usually gives the typical "bull-horn" appearance seen in SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis). Herein, we report a case of a 47-year-old woman with a history of invasive ductal carcinoma who had undergone left radical mastectomy 3 years earlier and presented with typical increased tracer uptake in the bilateral sternocostoclavicular region resembling the so-called bull horn. The final diagnosis of metastasis from breast cancer was made histopathologically following biopsy.

  • Tc-99m human serum albumin lymphoscintigraphy in lymphedema of the lower extremities.

    abstract::Edema of the lower extremities is a difficult clinical problem. It can be due to stasis, obstruction of the lymphatic channels, increased production of lymph beyond the drainage capacity of the lymphatic vessels. It is often difficult to differentiate between these varieties. Lymphoscintigraphy was performed on 164 pa...
