The biodistribution of Ga-67 citrate can be altered by a number of pharmaceuticals, treatments, and interventions. The authors present a case of a 19-year-old black man with sickle cell disease who received a Ga-67 scan to evaluate for possible left leg osteomyelitis. The patient received multiple blood transfusions over several years due to refractory anemia, causing an unusual distribution of Ga-67 activity.
