Calciphylaxis and bone scintigraphy: case report with histological confirmation and review of the literature ANNALS OF NUCLEAR MEDICINE Han, M. M., Pang, J., Shinkai, K., Franc, B., Hawkins, R., Aparici, C. M. 2007; 21 (4): 235–38


We present a patient with a history of end-stage renal disease, who developed skin lesions in the bilateral calves a month after the initiation of hemodialysis. The lesions were biopsied, and the histological findings were consistent with a diagnosis of calciphylaxis. The patient had a baseline pretreatment bone scan that showed extensive systemic disease. The patient died 20 days after the imaging study. A review of the literature on bone scans and calciphylaxis is presented.
