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.

  • Utility of (99m)Tc RBC Scintigraphy in Diagnosing Parotid Venous Malformations.

    abstract::Venous malformations of the parotid glands are uncommon and can be difficult to confirm on routine anatomical imaging alone because of overlap of imaging features with other more common parotid lesions. (99m)Tc RBC scans combined with SPECT/CT offer a noninvasive way to diagnose parotid venous malformations without th...
