Title: Abnormal /sup 67/Ga-citrate scan of the abdomen in tuberculous peritonitis: case report

Abstract

Tuberculous peritonitis in a 34-year-old alcoholic man was associated with an abnormal /sup 67/Ga-citrate scan of the abdomen. Repeated studies after thorough bowel cleansing revealed no change in the site and shape of the abnormality for 2 to 5 days after injection of the tracer. The inflammatory process may have been responsible for the abnormal scan. (auth)
