Abstract

To test the hypothesis that abnormalities on 67Gacitrate scans parallel the clinical course of acute osteomyelitis and revert to normal with successful antibiotic therapy, serial scans were performed in ten children. Scans improved markedly within the first two to four weeks of treatment, but abnormalities persisted at six or more weeks in over 50% of the cases, despite complete clinical resolutions of disease.
