An account is given of the results observed with I-131 MIBG scintigraphy in four patients (1 bladder pheochromocytoma, 3 neuroblastomas) chosen on account of their particular clinical and diagnostic interest from a series of 41 apudoma patients examined by means of this technique. In the first patient, the unusual site of the tumor in the posterior wall of the bladder meant that its detection by I-131 MIBG was only possible after catheterization of the bladder. In the second patient, uptake in… CONTINUE READING
