Title: Plague and the gallium scan: case report

Abstract

Inflammation in the right axillary lymph nodes and the meninges was detected by $sup 67$Ga-citrate scans in an 11-year-old boy with Yersinia pestis infection. This case provides another example of $sup 67$Ga localizing to areas of infection, indicating potential utility in future cases of bubonic plague. (auth)
