Sometimes unexpected extraosseous uptakes appear in a bone scintigraphy as a consequence of a wide spectrum of nonosseous disorders. Recognition of these findings is important to enhance the diagnostic value of bone scintigraphy. We report a case of intense bone scintigraphy cutaneous uptake due to elastolytic actinic giant cell granuloma (EAGCG). We present the case of a patient with intense extraosseous uptakes of 99mTc-HDP that appeared in a bone scintigraphy that was performed for lumbar pain.
