Abstract

We report a case of tuberculosis which, although clinically unsuspected, was diagnosed on a 67Ga scan. It is well known that 67Ga scintigraphy may be used as an adjunct to radiography for assessing extent and localization of inflammatory activity and for follow-up and progression evaluation of diffuse granulomatous diseases such as sarcoid and tuberculosis.
