Title: Lupus myocarditis: case report

Abstract

Although gallium-67 (/sup 67/Ga) accumulates in both neoplastic and inflammatory tissues, indium-111 (/sup 111/In) labeled leukocytes are seen only in inflammatory cells. Indium-111-labeled leukocytes therefore are a useful agent in the noninvasive differentiation of inflammatory tissue from neoplastic tissue. This case is an interesting example of the use of /sup 111/In-labeled leukocytes to make that differentiation.
