Title: Serendipitous finding of transitional cell carcinoma of the kidney on bone and gallium imaging

Abstract

A 50-year-old woman presented with low back pain. Bone scintigraphy showed a focus of increased activity in the upper pole of the left kidney. Subsequent Ga-67 citrate scintigraphy demonstrated this same abnormal focus as a region of increased activity. Ultrasonography showed a renal mass in the upper pole of the left kidney. At surgery a transitional cell carcinoma of the upper pole of the left kidney was found.
