Abstract

This case describes the first detection of solid lymphoma lesions by gallium-67 scintigraphy in a 12-year-old patient with Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome. Gallium 67 uptake was found in multiple sites in the patient who had developed an undifferentiated small, noncleaved cell lymphoma. Response to chemotherapeutic treatment is correlated with findings on the gallium scintigraphy follow-up.
