A 27-year-old woman, who has received a hydroxyapatite orbital implant in the right eye due to a trauma 6 years ago, was newly diagnosis with left breast invasive ductal carcinoma. 99mTc-MDP bone scan showed an increased radiotracer accumulation in the right orbit and SPECT/CT confirmed the focal accumulation at the site of the implant, without any sign of local malignant lesions or orbital infection. Radionuclide imaging could provide certain useful information in diagnosing or differential diagnosing orbital disease.
