The scintigraphic abnormalities with radionuclide bone scanning observed in a patient with metastatic breast carcinoma associated with hypercalcaemia are described. Abnormal uptake of 99mTc-pyrophosphate was noted in the lungs, stomach, myocardium, kidneys, and thyroid, indicating metastatic visceral calcification. A scan performed 72 h later when she was normocalcaemic showed marked reduction in the accumulation in the myocardium and thyroid.
