Bone scintigraphy in scurvy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Scintigraphic bone changes in two cases of scurvy are described, the cause being subperiosteal hematoma. Generalized increased uptake was shown in the affected femur at an early stage of the disease. At a late stage, marked uptake both in the femoral shaft and surrounding tissue was seen causing scintigraphic appearance of widened ('club-shaped') femur.
