There have been several reports of etidronate disodium (EHDP) interference upon the biodistribution of 99mTc-methylene diphosphonate (MDP). With the increasing use of etidronate for the treatment of Paget's disease, hypercalcemia, and osteoporosis, nuclear physicians can expect to encounter increasing numbers of cases in which EHDP-induced artifacts impair(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) has been shown to be both sensitive and highly specific for the detection of neuroblastoma. However, controversy surrounds its sensitivity in detecting neuroblastoma when compared with radionuclide (technetium 99m-methylene diphosphonate [99mTc]-MDP) bone scans. Because a diagnostic test ideally should(More)
An induced sputum specimen from a 35-year-old patient with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) contained numerous bright orange-red needle-shaped crystal inclusions in his alveolar macrophages. Careful questioning revealed that he recently had been treated for 7 months with clofazimine (200 mg/d) for persistent Mycobacterium avium complex(More)
Infantile myoclonic encephalopathy (opsoclonus-myoclonus or IME) is a rare clinical syndrome associated with occult neuroblastoma in 20%-50% of all cases. IME is the initial presentation of neuroblastoma in 1%-3% of children. Imaging approaches including chest radiography and abdominal computed tomography (CT) have been proposed to detect neuroblastoma in(More)
UNLABELLED Asymmetric chest activity with malignant and benign pleural effusions has been described in bone scans. However, the clinical utility of this finding is not elucible from the literature. We developed specific scintigraphic criteria for malignant pleural effusion and retrospectively assessed their sensitivity and specificity in a group of patient(More)
CLINICAL HISTORY PATIENT 1-year-old white male. CHIEF COMPLAINT Bruising, pallor, and decreased activity. HISTORY OF PRESENT ILLNESS Bruising had first been noticed on both lower extremities 3 weeks before the day he arrived at the hospital seeking treatment. The patient experienced a fall at that time that resulted in a lip laceration, which resolved(More)
The authors describe 3 children who presented with progressively enlarging skin-covered solid masses over the shunt catheter in the neck/clavicular region. The authors reviewed the clinical, laboratory, pathological, radiographic, and follow-up data for all 3 patients and reviewed the literature on the subject. The patients had no clinical evidence of an(More)
Horner's syndrome may be due to a variety of serious underlying disorders including cervical neuroblastoma. Horner's syndrome results from a unilateral disruption of the sympathetic innervation to the head and neck. We report a patient with cervical neuroblastoma in whom post operative metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scans showed a striking decrease in(More)
