Precision of SPECT/CT Allows the Diagnosis of a Hidden Brodie’s Abscess of the Talus in a Patient with Sickle Cell Disease

Abstract

Brodie's abscess is a rare subacute osteomyelitis that can be found in sickle cell disease along with other bone complications. A 21-year-old female with sickle cell disease was presenting frequently to the medical casualty department for painful vasoocclusive crises and for persistent ankle pain and swelling.
